That brings us to yesterday, and this article on Politico. The headline is -- Clinton Eyes Biden for Secretary of State.
You read it here first. (Well, okay, "there," since officially Twitter isn't "here" per se...) Hey, we tries nots to steer you wrong.
As you might imagine, I like to think that my suggestion is where the idea came from, augmented my my relentless repetition. Mind you, I also like to think that pizza is low-cal and non-fat. And I like to think, too, that they'll bring back the TV show Frank's Place any day now. So, clearly, what I think doesn't hold a great deal of water.
The article notes a few things that hardly make this a done deal, starting of course with the fact that Secretary Clinton hasn't been elected president yet. Also, when she was Secretary of State herself, she and Biden often found them on opposite sides of the debate, with Biden generally recommending more cautious action. That said, Hillary Clinton knows that she was a political rival of Barack Obama, and he named her Secretary of State, and the relationship worked out very well. And one other uncertainty is that Joe Biden hasn't been contacted yet about his interest. The Clinton team is said to be trying to figure out how to best approach him. However, Biden's expertise has long been foreign affairs, having served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. And he's expressed an interest to stay involved with politics. So...who knows? But first, of course, she has to win the election.

And any other Great and Wise thoughts that might pop into my head on rare occasion, I'll be sure to mention them. Like, I think it would be great if the Chicago Cubs won the World Series...
