The Guardian is reporting that Hillary Clinton will accept the post of Secretary of State in the Obama administration.
Hillary Clinton plans to accept the job of secretary of state offered by Barack Obama, who is reaching out to former rivals to build a broad coalition administration, the Guardian has learned.
Clinton would be well placed to become the country's dominant voice in foreign affairs, replacing Condoleezza Rice. Since being elected senator for New York, she has specialised in foreign affairs and defence. Although she supported the war in Iraq, she and Obama basically agree on a withdrawal of American troops.
Rumours of the appointment have been circulating for the past two days but this is the first indication that Senator Clinton has decided to accept the offer.
