DOA

14Nov08

Can this be for real, or is it just the usual gameplaying – make women feel good about Barack by pretending to be respecting Hillary?

George Stephanopoulos reported Clinton’s name being in the mix last week on Good Morning America, but the buzz grew louder today after Clinton was spotted boarding a flight to Chicago.

It might have been about a job in the Obama administration, or maybe she had a craving for deep dish.

Her spokesman Philippe Reines would not discuss Clinton’s schedule, and of course the Obama Transition Team would not comment.

The thinking about a Secretary of State Clinton is simple, I’m told: she’s smart, she’s strong, she’s experienced, she’s a team player, she is usually pretty diplomatic, and she also brings some gender diversity to an Obama Team concerned about such matters.

Let’s be serious – why would Obama want Hillary around, and why would Hillary want to put her career in the hands of Barack. Secretaries of State last about 2 years, don’t they?

She brings instant stature to the job, one Democrat told me. Many world leaders have known her for almost two decades.

“Clinton is the gold standard around the world, ” said Chris Lehane, a former spokesman for Vice President Al Gore.

Ya, sure. Consider this idea DOA.
