Hillary to State

Posted By on Fri, Nov 21, 2008 at 2:45 PM

Sounds like it. Sorry, Mo, Chris, etc. An angle with LR implications:

People close to the vetting said Mr. Clinton turned over the names of 208,000 donors to his foundation and library and agreed to all of the conditions requested by Mr. Obama’s transition team, including restrictions on his future paid speeches and role at his international foundation.

If Bill Clinton isn't traveling the globe to schmooze world leaders and financiers for contributions -- and he shouldn't if his wife becomes secretary of state -- it's hard to see how his foundation will continue to pull in $120 million a year, as it did last year. That has implications for a variety of worthy causes the foundation has supported, from HIV/AIDS relief to such smaller local things as the speaker series at the Clinton School for Public Service.

Larger issue: Barack Obama looks like a very big man here. If hard work is enough to reward him for the choice, he has nothing to worry about. Judgment? Diplomatic skills? Results? We shall have to wait and see.

ALSO: Cabinet to include Timothy Geithner, NY Federal Reserve officer, to Treasury. Bill Richardson at Commerce.
