Hillary Clinton is Promising Candidate to become the Next Secretary of State

November 14, 2008

Washington (ChattahBox) – Senator Hillary Clinton emerged as a promising candidate to be the next US Secretary of State in the Obama administration. Obama had defeated her a few months back in a tough and a bitter battle while running for the Presidential elections nomination in the party. Obama’s selection as the next suitable candidate for the Presidential elections had created a rift in the party. Clinton and Obama had later tried to heal the widened gap.

Hillary Clinton’s selection as top US diplomat could mean more intense foreign policy than promised by Obama.  Clinton was more reluctant to promise a timeframe of withdrawing troops from Iraq during her campaign trails.

The news regarding selection of Senator Hillary Clinton were not confirmed by the senior aides but said that she would be an asset to the new administration at any senior post. They also stated that any speculations about her selection for the new administration are to be addressed by Obama’s transition team. “We’re not going to discuss any meeting he has about appointments,” said Robert Gibbs, a senior Obama aide. Obama’s transition team aides did state that there were several names under consideration but there no announcements will be made this week,

Clinton has extensive foreign policy experience from her time in the senate where she serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee. During Obama’s campaign she had tore into Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience and had described some of his proposals such as talking to Iran, as naïve.
