The No-News Transition Gets a Dose of Buzz
By Ben Pershing
As the "No Drama Obama" campaign has turned into the "No News Transition" -- we are accepting suggestions for catchier slogans -- there remains one sure-fire way to inject some buzz into what has been a mostly buzz-less process: Hillary Clinton.
In classic D.C. fashion, the junior senator from New York has magically materialized on the list of potential Secretary of State nominees in the last 24 hours, her name now being "mentioned" and "discussed" for the job along with the previous handful of known suspects: John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, maybe Sam Nunn and a few others.
Why would Obama pick his vanquished primary foe? Aside from her obvious big-name stature, Clinton is said by those in the know to have a potential "Team of Rivals" appeal to Obama. (That book has now become the go-to explanation any time a politician considers reaching out to someone they personally dislike. Maybe Obama should just skip a step and put Doris Kearns Goodwin in the Cabinet.)
