Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

The latest rumor (aka “Breaking News” on cable TV) that’s coming out of the transition is that Hillary Clinton is being considered for the post of Secretary of State.

The pick of the former presidential contender and Senate Armed Services Committee member would go a long way toward healing any remaining divisions within the Democratic Party after the divisive primaries. Also, Clinton has long been known for her work on international women’s issues and human rights. The former first lady could also enhance Obama’s efforts to restore U.S. standing amongst allies worldwide.

And Obama could put her in his speed-dial for a 3 a.m. phone call every morning.

It would also go a long way toward driving the right-wing nutsery even more around the bend, and I’m all in favor of that.
