Hilary Clinton has been named as America's next Secretary of State, the most powerful cabinet position in Obama's administration and fourth in line to the Presidency according to the Succession Act. In many ways, this will be a much better use of Mrs Clinton's talents than would have been the case had she been selected as the Vice President. Assuming she can corral her erratic husband she should be an indomitable force for diplomacy.
