Congrats to the Guardian for getting the story before at least CNN and the NY Times. And congratulations to Obama for picking a strong woman with a lot of experience and a deep commitment to human rights. Obama is apparently following the Lincoln policy of putting former rivals in the cabinet in order to build a broad-based coalition. And, given the amount of work she did for him, “former” is the right word.
If the Guardian is wrong, I may cry.
Caveat: After some searching among news sources, I have to say that on this side of the pond whether Obama is going to make the offer seems still to be in question. At the same time, some commentators were clear that there would be a gap between what’s the official activity (vetting Bill, for example) and what’s really happened. So the Guardian report seems premature. Or not.
