Madam Secretary???

I wonder if Hillary will have to fill out the 7 page questionaire. I can just see her, pen in hand, pausing over; "Do you have any relatives who actions may prove to be an embarrassment?" JC

Hillary Clinton's hopes of becoming Madam President have died - at least for 2008. But could she rise again as Madam Secretary?
Anticipation that Clinton could be called to serve as secretary of state in Barack Obama's administration rose today after his aides leaked details of a secret meeting between the two former bitter primary rivals at his transition headquarters in Chicago.
Clinton made her surprise visit to Obama's transition office yesterday afternoon. The meeting was not on Clinton's official schedule, and her Senate staff had previously said she was in Chicago for personal reasons.
Today, the woman occupying the centre of the political stage, gave away nothing about her future.
"I'm not going to speculate or address anything about the president-elect's incoming administration. And I am going to respect his process and any inquiries should be directed to his transition team," Clinton told a conference in Albany, New York.
Others in the Clinton camp were adamant that the meeting was not a job interview or in any way decisive. But the mere fact that it occurred has fuelled speculation that Clinton is now a contender for a major cabinet post.

Here is my concern--while I totally agree with how we have to move
forward on putting the wheels in motion to get Sarah on the ticket we
may not be able to do most of what we want if the Democrats have a
filibuster-proof vote. They can easily remove our voice in the media
through the Fairness Doctrine or Democrat approved amnesty for the
illegals and the felon vote. so all of our work might be for naught
if we are sabotaged in this way. We have to have some kind of balance
in Congress.
> Right now there is a race in Georgia for another Republican seat in
the senate. We are very, very close to the dangerous 60 Democratic
seats. I don't know how people can help--like many of you--I have a
70 hour a week job--we are all so busy. I am going to donate to the
Republican Trust --a group that is fighting for
> Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R). If anyone else wants to donate, go here:

Anyone who is in or near Georgia can help to get out the
Republican vote by contacting their local GOP. I am aware that many
people do not know the importance of this race and the one in
Minnesota. The race is over the first week in December. Thanks
everyone.
