De Facto Clinton Restoration?

Is that what is happening here? What do you guys think? It's practically official; Hillary accepts the State position.
Clinton Decides to Accept Post at State Dept., Confidants Say

I can appreciate Obama's penchant for Lincoln's "Team of Rivals", but now the latest is that Bill Richardson is being considered for the Commerce job? Really?

And after picking off all the top Dem players at the federal and state levels for cabinet positions, doesn't this leave openings for the Reps to move in? Not that I'm a big party politics backer, but it does look like the same ol' same ol'. Kinda disappointed but reserving full judgment. I'm sure the conservatives are gagging while having a field day at the thought of being able to drudge up the tired, old Clinton lines again. And Letterman, Leno, Stewart and all the other comedians are screaming, "Thank you, God!"

Why Obama Wants Hillary for His 'Team of Rivals' and all the baggage that comes with it...I have a bad feeling about this.

Okay, I'm thrilled that Obama has made such terrific cabinet choices. It is obvious that the Republicans were wrong about his penchant for ideology. Obama is a pragmatist. Obama's future is beginning to look a lot like his past, well thought out and effective. He'll surround himself with the best and the brightest. He'll run the country much like he ran his campaign; He'll get the job done. Also, want to weigh in on the fact that Hillary Rodham Clinton is back - - And that's a good thing!

Bravo, Obama.
