When I first heard the rumors in print that Senator Clinton was being considered for SecState, I figured it was just courtesy chatter to help make Nice between Clinton and Team Obama.
If the choices truly being considered are only Clinton, Kerry, Richardson, and Luger, then please let it be Clinton.
Kerry is an empty headed pretty boy suite. I for one think it would pretty bad to have as the Chief Diplomat somebody who has accused the USA soldiers of the Vietnam era and of the current Iraq/Afghanistan campaign of being war criminals and marauding rapist. WTF is up with MA that they vote for this guy, anyways? He would be a disaster as SecState.
Richardson has the right resume. He performance in the primary debates was terrible though. He came across as confused and befuddled on security issues. It appears he has just been a resume-building ticket puncher. I have see enough of them in corporate America to stay clear of them. So should Obama.
Lugar has never made an impression on me one way or another.
So, good luck Secretary of State (to be, I hope) Clinton!
