The headline is from the British tabloid Daily Mail, but don't necessarily dismiss the source. In January I posted this item:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she wants to step off the “high wire of American politics” after two decades and is again tamping down speculation that she might stay in government if President Barack Obama wins a second term. “I have made it clear that I will certainly stay on until the president nominates someone and that transition can occur” if Obama wins re-election, she told a town hall meeting. “But I think after 20 years, and it will be 20 years, of being on the high wire of American politics and all of the challenges that come with that, it would be probably a good idea to just find out how tired I am.” But, she appeared to leave the door open for a possible eventual return, adding to laughter from the crowd that “everyone always says that when they leave these jobs.”According to the Daily Mail, the top prospect to replace Clinton is Sen. John Kerry, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. If Clinton does indeed step down in January, the cries of "Hillary 2016!" will be deafening.
