That hurts, GS.

I'm assuming she'll decline, after much theatrics.

Her job in the Senate is far cushier.

As much as any politician, Hillary seems driven by personal ambition. She is a bit player in the Senate with little/no seniority. Depending on the details, she might seriously consider it...

Can't see it. Ambition is the point. In the Senate, she has a job for life, is a bona fide celebrity, and only has to run once every six years. Not that she'd ever lose.

Sure, she'd like a prominent position on the world stage, but what would there be for her after she crashes and burns as SoS? And she would, you know.

Well, I'm sure she understands that she'll never be president. The U.S. doesn't do back-to-back Dems without a dramatic death as part of the process. So, best case scenario Obama is defeated by the GOP in '12, and she takes the office in '16. And that best case scenario involves back-to-back single term presidents, which is pretty damned unlikely, and she'll be about 104 or sumptin' by 2020. This may be the only brass ring she'll ever have a shot at. You may well be right, we'll find out soon enough...

Hmm. I suppose she'd make more headlines as SoS.

She does love the spotlight. Maybe GS is right.

I'd still bet she won't last through Barack's first term. And then what?
