Reuters, quoting the New York Times, reports that Hillary Clinton has accepted Barack Obama's offer of Secretary of State. A formal announcement is to come after the thanksgiving break.
"She's ready," one of the sources told the newspaper, which said Clinton came to her decision after additional discussions with Obama about the nature of her role as the top U.S. diplomat and his plans for foreign policy.
This is the most definitive report in a week of rumors, leaks, and speculation. Given the discipline Obama has instilled in his staff, one has to wonder how he feels about leaks from her camp on these issues?
