Rumors are circulating every major news network that Sen. Hillary Clinton has been offered the post of Secretary of State. The rumors started when Hillary Clinton was asked to visit the President elect in Chicago.
I predict that if she was offered the job, she will accept it. I canâ€™t think of a single person who would excite and unite the world of diplomacy more then Hillary Clinton. It would be a stark contrast between the image that Condi Rice is thought to project, which is a cold and calculating natureâ€¦ oh wait. Regardless, the other runner-ups are rumored to be Gov. Richardson and Sen. Kerry, and if thatâ€™s the case Hillary should start meeting with carrier diplomats right away.
I mean in all seriousness, Kerry would be a wonderful choice if our foreign policy called for boring the international community (and possibly Iraqi insurgents) to death. And as for Bill Richardson, well, no one likes a turncoat. Richardson’s international stature has taken a dive recently, with his failure (according to Latin-American news sources) to negotiate the hostage surrender he was asked to mediate.
