Will Hillary Clinton be the next Secretary of State?

Posted Nov. 14, 2008 – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is among the candidates that President-elect Barack Obama is considering for secretary of State, reports The Associated Press. The news comes from two Democratic officials close to the Obama transition team, AP says.

Clinton, the former first lady who ran hard against Obama in the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination, was rumored to be a contender for the job last week, but the talk died down as party activists questioned whether she was best-suited to be the nation's top diplomat in an Obama administration.

Rumors persisted in Washington and elsewhere Thursday, a day after Obama named several former aides to President Bill Clinton to help run his transition effort. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines referred questions about the post to the Obama transition team, which said it had no comment.
