Here is the most bizarre story I’ve heard in a while. Apparently President-elect Obama is considering Senator Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. While I wonder whether this is a good choice alone on its merits, what really gets me is how people in the press seem to believe that Bill Clinton, a former president who received millions of votes twice, somehow needs to be vetted. It’s not as if the media has cut him a break.
The reason behind all of this might be best put as the calm before the storm. Right now there is no news, and so a vacuum must be filled. With names being bantered about like Clinton and Richardson, who knows who the real nominee will be?
