Hillary Up For Sec. of State
The Barack Obama transition team has leaked to George Stephanopoulos and other ABC News reporters news that Hillary Clinton is being seriously considered for Sec. of State. The Obama team leaked the same story to MSNBC reporter Andrea Mitchell. Senator Clinton's office is referring media questions to the Obama transition team.
This may be Obama repaying Clinton for her general election endorsement. The fact is Bill Richardson is the more qualified candidate. Richardson is former Ambassador to the United Nations and Secretary of Energy. He also served as a staffer on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and State Department. Clinton could do the job well. Richardson would perform like a chess master.
