Time for a comeback?

It looks like my favorite woman of the 2008 election may be staging her comeback.  Reports tonight are indicating that Barack Obama may be considering Hillary Clinton as a candidate for secretary of state.

According to this article from the Chicago Tribune, Obama’s team said this evening that Senator Clinton would be an “asset to the new administration,” but wouldn’t confirm any specifics, including whether or not she’s being considered for secretary of state.

Clinton’s office said she flew to Chicago earlier on Thursday for personal business, according to a Reuters article. Some think appointing his primary opponent may help to completely heal any bitter divides left over from the race, especially after Clinton supporters criticized Obama for passing her up as a vice presidential candidate.

Other names that have been tossed around lately have included 2004 Democratic candidate John Kerry and Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Republican who backed Barack Obama during the election.

I couldn’t be more excited for the possibly return of this strong and independent woman, as a former Hillary Clinton supporter in the general election.

I hope she brings the pantsuits to Washington.
