Hilary Clinton expected to Step down in January 2013

Wednesday, November 7, 2012


With the Bush tax cuts expiring at the end of the year, it's as if the President doesn't have enough on his plate. In another event that should happen at the same time that the Bush tax expire, there should be a change in command when it comes to the position of Secretary of State.
Yes, Hilary Clinton is now expected to retire in January. So now a political guessing game will take place in trying to decide who President Obama will nominate for the position to replace her. Do you think this is precedence to a bid for the White House for Hilary Clinton in 2016? Personally, I do not believe that Hilary will run, especially since she ran against Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2012 and is already at age 65, which means she would have to endure a presidential run in just 3 years at age 68 and fulfill her first term in office as President at age 73. Three candidates that may be considered for the position is Democratic Senator John Kerry, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and National Security adviser  Tom Donilon. Personally, I believe that President Obama will nominate Susan Rice. As for John Kerry, that would mean a potential loss of a democratic Senate seat for Massachusetts.
So what else is in store for Obama's core national security team? How about speculation that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will step down in mid-2013. Two possible successors for him include his deputy, Ashton Carter, and former Pentagon Security Chief Michele Flournoy, whom if elected to that position would be the very first female defense secretary.
