Could Hilary Clinton be the next Secretary of State?

Multiple rumours abound that Hilary Clinton is the favorite to become the next Secretary of State of the United States in the new Barack Obama administration. Wouldn't that be a stretch after the two fought for the Democratic Presidential nomination just a few months ago? Kudos to Obama for moving forward and not looking backwards. He'll need to do more of this to move the country forward next year. It would be a refreshing thing to see in the petty world of US politics.

A Clinton selection as top US diplomat could mean a much more hawkish foreign policy than Obama advocated during his presidential campaign. On the campaign trail, Clinton was more reluctant than Obama to commit to a firm timetable for withdrawing American troops from Iraq.
