Breaking: Clinton accepts State

Bunches of people are reporting that Hillary Clinton has accepted Barack Obama's offer of Secretary of State, and will be announced as the nominee sometime after Thanksgiving.

My preferred candidate for the post, Bill Richardson, is being touted as Commerce Secretary. I don't know about his economics chops, but I do know he has tons of experience in Washington.

We'll see. I honestly don't know how Clinton will do as SOS. I'm a little worried about her hawkish comments toward Iran on the campaign trail; hopefully Obama can rein her in a little bit on that.

Other news reports are saying that Obama will announce his economic team on Monday, including Richardson and Timothy Geithner for Treasury Secretary.
