Being Self-Confident

The decision that President-elect Obama has presumably chosen his former rival, Hillary Clinton to serve as Secretary of State shows an incredible amount of self-confidence and leadership, not to mention wisdom. Senator Clinton is most qualified for the job. Through his decisions President-elect Obama is proving to be a person of immense self-confidence, a quality needed for any great transformational leader.

The selection of Hillary for the Secretary of State, as seems to be the case is surprising, not least from her acceptance. It means I think that she has given up any ideas of being president, and I wonder why she is not staying in the Senate. What can she accomplish in the role?

Perhaps there is something to be said for advancing a vast transformative agenda rather than a personal one. (This may seem unlikely considering her and the former president's M.O.) I might also say that anything is possible in this new era of change. Why couldn't she run again in 2016?

With regards to what Senator Clinton has to offer, she will undoubtedly help to repair America's image in the world, as she is regarded highly internationally. She will also be good in Middle East negotiations. Outside of the President-elect this position is one that the world sees most.

Hillary Clinton is a strong respected figure on the national and international stage. She will assist in the shaping of history. Her voice will be heard as a spokesperson for the U.S.

I like the idea of Hillary as Secretary of State. She is held in high esteem around the world and she surely has the competence, wit and will for the office.

P.S. I am not commenting much lately on your blog but you are still my first columnist on USA issues. If Obama has the CIA delivering almost daily briefing, well, I have your blog ;-)
