Hey, I am back. Don't you think Richardson would make a better SoS anyway? He's been very results-oriented in his past ventures overseas on behalf of the US. I also think that John Kerry would be a great SoS. Clinton doesn't strike me as someone that's been as focused on international affairs as have those two. And regardless, it looks like it won't happen
An adviser to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said the former first lady is flattered by Obama's offer to make her secretary of State, but has reservations about leaving her Senate post (New York Times).
Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., has asked Clinton to shepherd health care reform through Congress (Los Angeles Times) and she is reportedly considering turning down Obama's offer in favor of taking on this role (Politico).
That said, Obama's 'team of rivals' mode is big thinking, and indicative of his intention (which he mentioned election night) of being a two term President. He knows its a two-fer with Bill Clinton aiding Hillary too, in the SoS position (does he want it more than she-- what drama); three birds with one stone might be too far a stretch.
