Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

Andrea Mitchell:

Two Obama advisers have told NBC News that Hillary Clinton is under consideration to be secretary of state. Would she be interested? Those who know Clinton say possibly. But her office says that any decisions about the transition are up to the president-elect and his team.
Armadillo Joe and I was tossing names around a few months ago (including John Edwards for Attorney General before the whole affair thing) and he said that Hillary would be good for Secretary of State. I agree with him. Does she want it? Who knows. I'm also not crazy about another open Senate seat should this situation come to pass.

Apparently John Kerry and Bill Richardson are very interested in the job.

What do you think?

Hi Broadway C! My 2 cents...
Keep Hill in the Senate, skip right over Kerry and pass the Sec State torch to Richardson. He freakin' earned it! Must lose nasty beard though...ewwww.

The open Senate seat is a problem, but I do think Hill would do a great job in this role. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.
