CHICAGO (Reuters) – Sen. Hillary Clinton emerged on Thursday as a candidate to be U.S. secretary of state for Barack Obama, months after he defeated her in an intense contest for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Her selection as top U.S. diplomat could also mean a more hawkish foreign policy than that advocated by Obama during his presidential campaign. On the campaign trail, Clinton was more reluctant than Obama to commit to a firm timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq.

Hillary Clinton is no different than the current Secretary Of State Condoleeza Rice.
Hmmm, that would allow her to wreak havoc on the Obama presidency and then come back in 4 years. I knew she wasn’t done with this…
