When I first heard this speculation I dismissed it. Why would Hillary Clinton want to give up a Senate seat for life to take a cabinet post and why would Obama want her in the government?
Now I think making Hillary Clinton the Secretary of State is both good politics and good government.
I love all the Machiavelli/Godfather/Team of Rivals references about keeping you enemies closer than your friends. That works in Hollywood and cable TV but that's not all of it.
It's good politics because it would co-opt a rival and avoid sniping from the sidelines.
It would be good government because Hillary has been travelling the world for years and knows many of the players and they know her.
America will present a new united face to the world.
