Hillary For SecDef?
Speculation in the nation's capital on who will replace Robert Gates at the Pentagon has centered on an intriguing possibility: Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gates told Foreign Policy magazine that he wants to step down as secretary of Defense sometime in 2011. The appointment of Clinton to replace Gates would be historic. The former first lady and presidential candidate would be the first woman to serve as Defense secretary and only the second person – after George C. Marshall – to have served as both secretary of State and Defense. “That might appeal to her,” [Les] Gelb said.
That would not appeal to me. We need Hillary to run for President in 2016. She can't do the SecDef job through, say 2014, and then run for President. Not enough time. Wes Clark for SecDef!
Speaking for me only
