Clinton Is Said to Accept Offer of Secretary of State Position – NYTimes.com
Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to give up her Senate seat to become secretary of state in the Obama administration, making her the public face to the world for the man who dashed her own hopes for the presidency, confidants of Mrs. Clinton said Friday.
The accord between the two leading figures of the Democratic Party was the culmination of a weeklong drama that riveted the nation’s capital. President-elect Barack Obama and Mrs. Clinton fought perhaps the most polarizing nomination battle in decades, but in recruiting her for his cabinet, Mr. Obama chose to turn a rival into a partner, and she concluded she could have a greater impact by saying yes than by remaining in the Senate.

I am intrigued?
Who owns Obama? Who is behind Obama? Who runs Obama? Is Obama his ‘own’ man? Was John Grisham’s ‘The Appeal’ the reprise, or did it presage Obama or inspire Obama’s campaign?
Is Obama a “Son of the Clinton Presidency”?
Is he keeping the White House safe for Hillary?
