Obama's surprising and inspired decision to appoint Hillary secretary of state, and her loyal, steadfast, and supremely professional execution of her duties will, I assume, result in her being voted Gallup's most admired woman in the nation for the 11th consecutive year.
Whatever Obama's electoral fate in November, Hillary is leaving her cabinet post. Following form, she says she has no interest in the Oval Office. But the Clintons, like sharks, are genetically programmed to keep moving. Consider Bill's electric preacher-teacher address to the Democratic National Convention the opening salvo of Hillary's 2016 campaign.
"Hillary Clinton's future in politics remains an open question. But one thing remains clear.... Clinton has rediscovered her identity, the carpenter's level and the moral compass restored to their proper place." — William H. Chafe
