Hillary Clinton's Non-Role
Will Hillary Clinton actually have anything to do as Secretary of State? That is the question posed in this article from The Hill. Obama has been very keen to have a 'Team of Rivals' in his administration, and Clinton must have thought she'd won a particularly important victory when appointed Secretary of State. But as the Obama Administration settles in, has she been outmanouevred? Several other key administration insider seem to have marked foreign affairs out as their own patch, including Vice-President Joe Biden, and UN Ambassador Susan Rice. Perhaps Hillary should have stayed in the Senate after all.
