Hillary Clinton will step down as U.S. Secretary of State within 'days' of President Barack Obama's second inauguration in January, her spokesman said today. Her long-respected departure is expected by most Democrats to be a prelude for a White House run in 2016, when she will be 69. The top candidate to replace her is believed to be Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the losing 2004 Democratic presidential nominee. He is viewed as a more likely pick than Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, because of her widely-criticised appearance

Maybe she and her husband will finally go away. One can hope. I’m sick of both of them and trust me - they have done as much damage to this country as zero has. Why can’t they do like Bush did and just retire?
I’m thinking she can’t stand obammy, either.....
Bad news comes in bunches. Surely not John Kerry for Sec.of state????????????
A continued mystery to me—Why did she take the Secretary of State job in the first place? If I had the choice, I’d much rather be a Senator and if I were Hillary, someone who might have successfully primaried Barack.
What the heck does that mean?
Think long game.
Biden will be asked to retire. Hillary will be tapped for VP. In 2012 she is in optimal position to run for President.
Imagine that juggernaut. Two 2 term Presidents standing behind Hillary Clinton, the soon to be first female President !
GOP might as well nominate a scare crow, no chance in hell, zero.
* In 2016 she is in optimal position to run for President.
I'm thinking she wants to be far away from Benghazi hearings...
She wants 2016. Four years at an Arizona new age spa probably won’t be enoujgh.
I wonder if Bill Ayers will be the new Secretary of State... or perhaps Rev. Wright.
The real nightmare is going to be how many Supreme Court judges they get to put in place........
They are talking Susan Rice
Isn’t she damaged goods now?
Probably has same odds of being elected president as condoleeza Rice.
Probably in hope that she will not be prosecuted!
My thoughts exactly. Maybe she’ll be serving a prison term then. That’s where Obama needs to be...Prison for treason.
Obama will get to place at least 2 more so the USSC is gone too.
Hillary will complete the set for 9 neo-marxist penumbra judges and she will complete Revelation as the Whore that rides atop the Beast system.
Colin Powell maybe - payback for his endorsement?
I am halfway expecting Obama to show his true colors now that he has been elected and nominate someone with worldwide stature like George Clooney or maybe Bruce Springsteen for SOS.
Sometimes, it isn’t all that bad to be 76 yrs old. I won’t be around to see a lot of this happen.
However, I grieve for our 5 kids, their spouses, and our 11 grandkidsl
