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.
