Clinton Met With Obama About His Administration

A Democratic official has confirmed that Sen. Hillary Clinton met with President-elect Barack Obama this morning to discuss her role in his administration.

Clinton's trip to Chicago was described as "personal business" in a press release, but happened after a request from Obama. Rumor has it Clinton is under consideration for the secretary of state position.

Forty-two percent of CitizenSugar readers said the Clintons are still a favorite political family, but 36 percent of reader suspected Colin Powell would be the Secretary of State pick. On Monday Clinton said she is "happy being a senator from New York" and "looking at the long list of things I have to catch up on and do." What do you think about the prospect of Clinton having a place in Obama's camp?

No Stephley, I wasn't JOKING. He'd ONLY BEEN IN THE PRESIDENT ELECT FOR 20 MINUTES. I don't think it was real wonderful of her.

I think Hillary would be a great Secretary of State. If she doesn't get that position, I hope she still serves on the Obama administration in some way.

"According to The Onion, Nov 5th, she was complaining about him not having a Cabinet already lined up. I feel this was very disrespectful of her." This is a joke, right?

How does one forget who one passionately supported less than a year ago? And I thought my memory was bad! ;) Just kidding, Mykie. We all have the right to change our minds, of course.

I'm with you Heather.

I would like to see her take this position if offered under only one condition. SHE MUST RESPECT HIM. According to The Onion, Nov 5th, she was complaining about him not having a Cabinet already lined up. I feel this was very disrespectful of her.

You know what, I stand corrected. Thanks for pointing that out though, I had forgotten about that period of time. I've learned a lot since then thanks to some great friends and a lot of research on my part, and I'll be the first to point out just how wrong I was. I wasn't aware how important my words were to you all, it's really flattering that so many of you remember each and every statement I've ever made. I just don't have that much free time on my hands.

Mykie7, you have me so confused. What about your avi that had the "I voted for Hillary Clinton" picture? You were a staunch Hillary supporter!?! I am so confused!?! Were you only a primary supporter and then when the big bid came up you were going to switch to McCain...:shrug: Please help me understand thig.

"We are Americans, and in our America we do not torture, we do not imprison people without charge or legal remedy, we do not tap people's phones and emails without a court order, and above all we do not give any President unchecked power. I pledge to fight to protect and defend the Constitution from attack by any President." Any person who refuses to sign this would likely be a poor Supreme Court Justice.

Yeah, but Mykie, you specifically said that she's "the absolute best candidate to run this country at this time," and you mentioned Obama and McCain as the people we had left to choose from, so I really don't see how that equates to wanting her to be the Democratic candidate but not to win. Maybe I'm misunderstanding that quote.

Yes snowbunny, by Sandra Day O'Connor wasn't married to Bill.

TrueSong- I see your point, but some of the justices have been politicians. Also, Sandra Day O'Connor was extremely concerned with public opinion, and she was a fantastic justice because that trait kept her very balanced.

Yes I was hoping for this! Love to see her in Cabinet position. Hilary heal the world and come back in 2012 as the first female President!

I don't think a spot on the Court is good for someone so high profile. Even though she won't have to run for re-election, she's bound to be more concerned than most with public opinion and both her and her husband's legacy.

I also like her more for a cabinet position than VP. But I really want her on the Supreme Court! ;) However, I think cabinet position is more her style, so...

Jude, I support some of Hillary's IDEAS, and I would have rather had HER be the Democratic candidate than Obama, but not because I wanted her to win. But no, in general I haven't been a huge supporter of Hillary. And with Obama in office, I REALLY don't want her there, but that's another discussion for another time. LOL

I'd like to see her have a role in this administration. So I'd probably be pleased, but if she's not going to be, that's all good too.

"I still say Richardson for Secretary of State, but Clinton for something. Maybe Health and Human Services?" I agree 100%. It seems to me Hillary's passion is focused on family issues like Health Care. It would seem an odd transition to me fpr her to SOS, and I think that Richardson has a lot of experience with international negotiations that would be very useful. Obama is meeting with McCain on Monday. I think this is great that he is picking the brains of his former competitors. It shows a lot of respect and a lack of ego, IMO.

"Clinton for something. Maybe Health and Human Services? I know it hasn't been the most important role in the past, but I feel like Clinton could do big things with that position in an Obama White House." That's a good idea, lil. Although I must admit, I like Hillary better for the role of SoS than Kerry.
