2. With Hillary...

I think she'll stay on a little longer but she has to be exhausted. She will probably stay on until June of next year. Plus I think she's going to run again in 2016. Laying the ground work for that will have to start by 2014.

4. She has since said she's leaving... she has flip-flopped on this issue

Despite Obama victory, Clinton still aims to leave
By Jo Biddle (AFP) 13 minutes ago

WASHINGTON Secretary of State Hillary Clinton still plans to step down as America's top diplomat despite President Barack Obama's re-election, but will ensure a smooth transition, US officials said Wednesday.

"I don't think the secretary's plans have changed," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

"You've heard her say many times that she intends to see through a transition of a successor and then she will go back to private life and enjoy some rest, and think and write and all those things."

3. As much as I like Kerry, we need him in the Senate.

 

If he becomes SoS when Hillary steps down that jerkoff Brown will run for and probably win his seat.

How about Bill Richardson for State?
How about Wes Clark for Defense?
How about nearly anyone over Eric Holder?

6. I'm afraid that if Kerry went to State

Scott Brown would be back in the Senate.

7. So we agree then.

 

Good. It seems to be the prevailing conventional wisdom.

5. I agree

we need Kerry in the senate.

If Hillary leaves, I'd like Gates brought back into the fold as Sec. of State this time. He's reasonable, logical, and respected world wide.
