She won't be answering the White House telephone at 3 a.m., but Hillary Clinton may still play a powerful role in the next administration. On Monday, President-elect Barack Obama introduced Clinton as his choice for Secretary of State, ending a weeks-long saga of rumors, press leaks, political back-biting and negotiations with Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, who eventually agreed to release the long-secret list of donors to his charitable foundation to avoid any conflicts of interest. Bitter campaign rivalry aside, pundits and politicians have praised the choice, noting that Clinton's high-profile status is well-suited to the role of America's top diplomat — a daunting post made more difficult by deteriorating relations with Iran, North Korea and Pakistan. Still, some wonder if her outsized ambitions might be too much for the job.I know that I really shouldn't be too upset at Hillary being named Secretary of State, for one it gets her out of New York where she literally did nothing for like 8 years and secondly, the Clinton's being the centrists that they truly are will certainly make the Obama administration a little more tolerable and interesting, to say the least. It's just the in-your-face sleaziness and treacherous nature of Billary that should make all of us, including Barack Obama, very worried.
