According to a CNNPolitics.com article published last night, President-Elect Barack Obama is strongly considering appointing either Senator Hillary Clinton or New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as the new Secretary of State.
According to this same CNN article, Obama plans on speaking with Senator John McCain on Monday. The article doesn't state exactly what the topic of the expected conversation will be, but I assume, based on the context, that Obama is considering McCain for a possible position also.
"Obama spoke with Sen. Hillary Clinton on Thursday and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Friday about the key Cabinet post, multiple Democratic sources said."
"Clinton's response to Obama's overture is unknown, but sources said the New York senator left the meeting with the impression that if she were interested in the post, it would be hers."
"Obama campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs is widely expected to be named White House press secretary, and chief strategist David Axelrod is expected to be picked as a White House senior adviser.
"Also Friday, the Obama transition team announced that the Illinois senator will meet with the man he defeated in the general election, Republican Sen. John McCain, on Monday."
I wonder what Senator John McCain's answer will be if he is offered a position in President-Elect Barack Obama's cabinet?
