Officials: Hillary Clinton Being eyed for Secretary of State

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) _ Two Democratic officials say Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton is among the candidates President-elect Barack Obama is
considering for secretary of state.

The New York senator, who campaigned hard against Obama for the Democratic nomination, was rumored to be a contender for the job last week, but the talk died down as party activists questioned whether she was best-suited to be the nation's top diplomat.

The talk resumed in Washington and elsewhere Thursday, a day after Obama named several former aides to President Bill Clinton to help run his transition effort.
