What do you think? I think this is a classic Obama move. She requested time to consider the offer. I don't think Clinton as secretary of state would be just symbolism. It's a brilliant move and it does not demean her at all. This is smart politics, and the more I think about it, the more I like it. She did her duty in the campaign; she is the kind of toughie who could be a real Iron Lady against the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans and all of the other upstart dictators around the world. Senator Clinton is demonstrably able and brilliant; she has a global presence and is very well respected.
I don't think she will turn Obama down, she may say "Yes we can!!"
