There was a hint, not long ago, that Hillary might stay on for a bit if Obama were reelected. Here is the possible scenario.
IF Obama is reelected (at this hour, it appears very certain) pulling Kerry from the Senate to DOS would leave his seat open. Warren may have beaten Scott Brown, but he remains very popular in MA and could run for Kerry’s open seat. He could win and shift the balance in the Senate. To avoid risking that probable outcome, the administration would need Hillary to mentor another SOS successor. This would take some time. So she just might stay on at DOS longer than any of us expected. *voice of Snoopy* “Sigh!”
Well this is interesting.
