The only reason they differed greatly in foreign policy as far as I am concerned is that, Obama is black (obviously), so that gives us a better image for the situation we are in right now. Now no country can say that were racist! Which is good, because then other countries who are not sure if our intentions are good or bad, will now decide that were trying to do good if we elect a president while not looking at color.I have nothing to say...but wasn't foreign policy one of the few thing that her and Obama differed on?

And, you know, being First Lady for eight years and going on hundreds of visits to other countries.The only real experience Hillary has in foreign policy is her "dodging sniper fire" in bosnia.

I personally think that she should have been given the Healthcare portfolio, but SoS should be fine for her. She really is too good to not put in a cabinet.
*Blink, blink blink.*I know Condalisa Rice was a puppet for George Bush. What ever Bush said, Condi repeated word for word like she didn't have a brain of her own. It was really surprising because she is a lot more intelligent than Bush. As for Hillary, who knows. This is a "time will tell" answer. The U.S. is in the worse shape economically since the Great Depression, so there may be few good solutions for a long time to come.

As for Obama picking or Clinton accepting the job, I think that they would both be very foolish. Obama will be conflicting with Clinton, and Clinton will probably have problems having to promote Obama's policy.
As long as they keep it behind closed doors, once a decision is made the SoS has to go with it like it was their own.Someone who will challenge him and keep him from getting to absorbed in his own idea's.

This is similar to what my take was. Moreover, Obama has tied Clinton's political fortunes to his foreign policy success. She has to do a good job, which makes him look good. If she doesn't, she'll lose any chance of political success. As it is, Obama would have to have a catastrophic first term for her to lead a primary challenge in 2012, and by 2016 she'll be kaput--too old to run a national election campaign. For her, it's an opportunity to have a significant impact. There was really no room in the Senate for her to hold a position commensurate with her current position. She's too junior to get the plum jobs in the Senate, but she won 18m votes in the Democratic primaries, more than any other senator has gotten (except, possibly, in California).There's a saying, keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. To me it just seems like a way for him to keep an eye on her.
THANK YOU! Finally! Someone said it! She is everything you just said, and more. She is just SO blond, and she did shit when she was in senate, and she appointed one of her friends to a position in the govt. somewhere, and I will have to move to Canada at the rate this country is FAILING.... but I absolutely hate Hillary Clinton with a passion in my heart. I don't have a good reason for it. I don't have any solid explanation as to why I hate her. I just think she's a selfish, self-centered attention sponge. When I see her face, it makes me want to break lightbulbs in my hands and eat the shards.
