Hillary brings back unity

John McCain declared in his concession speech earlier this month that we should no longer be a group of red states and blue states, and that now is the time to come together as a country.

But it looks like it may take someone defeated by president-elect Obama a few months earlier to bring unity, or at least consensus among party leaders.  As the rumors that Senator Hillary Clinton may be selected as the next Secretary of State continued to circulate throughout the weekend after her visit to Chicago, both sides of the political fence are praising the possibility that the former rivals may be working together.

According to an article from CNN earlier today, Henry Kissinger, the former secretary of state for Nixon and Ford said Clinton would be an “outstanding selection.”  The article also quoted several other Republican congress people who backed Clinton.  Also, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California said, “I think this could be a great move.”

And one more backer?  Bill.  According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Bill Clinton said on Sunday that, “I think she’ll be really great as secretary of state.

I couldn’t agree more.  Especially if it means I get to bring my primary-season Hillary t-shirt out of retirement.
