Susan Rice is a Secretary of State in waiting...
Madeline Albright served as UN Ambassador for 4 years before being appointed Secretary of State under Clinton. She has the credentials, temperament, and philosophy that makes one a great SOS. If Hillary should choose to do something else in 4 years, Susan Rice would be good and ready to step in for Obama.

1. It's an almost certainty that Clinton would step down as Obama starts his second term.
Judging by history.

They she starts her 2016 campaign.

2. Sounds right. Or maybe she steps down in 2013 to give herself time for the 2016 elections.

12. No thanks. I like Paterson.
And I doubt she would go from Secretary of State to Governor anyway.

4. I agree.
The S.O.S. position is only a stepping stone for Hillary.

As I mentioned in another thread, Dr. Rice has impressive credentials. I would love to see her as a Secretary of State someday.

5. Hopefully Susan Powers can be a part of her staff
I don't see Hillary hiring her but I could be surprised.

7. I'm thinking Susan Powers will likely go to State.
Might be awkward, but it fits in with this whole competency trumping rivalry thing.

6. I'd say she's a frontrunner. I think Hillary is a four-year or two-year appointee.

11. I think I read today that she's only in her early forties.
She has a lot of time to be Secretary of State.

13. Clinton to SCOTUS?
Perhaps Senator Clinton will serve a few years as Secretary of State and then take a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. She IS a top notch attorney, you know...
