Hillary Clinton Has Resigned As Secretary Of State

Friday afternoon wasn’t just any old Friday afternoon: it was also Hillary Clinton’s last day of her four-year-long tenure as Secretary of State. Her successor, Senator John Kerry, was sworn in on Friday in a private ceremony and may do just as well a job as Hill did. But he certainly won’t give us any GIFs where he gets his freak on bumping and grinding,

So, what do we think Hillary Clinton is going to do with all her free time now? Text Meryl? Nag Bill about his diet? Plot world domination? [Photo: Getty]

Hillary Clinton TIME cover

“I think I was struck by my early travels, where one of the most common questions I kept being asked, especially in the audience of young people at universities and elsewhere, is: How could you work with President Obama? You ran against him. Because still in democracies, even ones that we think of as fairly mature, that was just a totally bizarre idea that two people who were political foes could ever end up working together. … And my answer always was: Yes, I mean, we ran hard against each other. He tried to beat me, I tried to beat him. But he won, then he asked me to work for him. And I said yes because we both love our country. So I think that that message resonated with a lot of people and, again, I would stress particularly young people.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on working alongside her former opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington. This quote is just one tidbit of the Q&A — mostly about foreign policy — that Hillary did with TIME‘s editor-in-chief. As I read their conversation, I was blown away by her intelligence and intellect. I highly, highly recommend you read it, too!  [TIME] Keep reading »

Hooray For Hillary!: Clinton Nominated For Secretary Of State

Earlier today, President-elect Barack Obama announced his nomination of Sen. Hillary Clinton for the position of Secretary of State. Sadly, the first thing I thought when she stepped up to the podium was that someone should have lowered the microphones because they blocked her face. The second thing I thought was that it’s pretty awesome that a woman can go from being First Lady to being selected for one of the top positions in our government. Sure, Hillary has always had her own agenda, and she wasn’t just deciding what the chef would cook for dinner when she lived in the White House with Bill, but even so, it’s nice to know that a woman can go from being known primarily as the wife of our country’s leader to being known as a leader in her own right, even if she doesn’t hold the country’s top spot.

Hillary Clinton The Bitch?

Hillary Clinton laid pretty low following her withdrawal from the Presidential campaign back in June, although her historic run was somewhat overshadowed in the last leg of the race by Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid. Now comes news that Clinton is a strong contender for secretary of state, replacing Condoleezza Rice. At the same time, a new New York essay asserts Clinton and Palin have set women back. Together, the author says, the women seemingly fit two sexist female stereotypes — The Bitch and The Ditz. I don’t entirely disagree with writer Amanda Fortini’s assessment of Palin’s mental prowess, but I do think she not only sells Clinton short, but misjudges her impact entirely — and that history will soon prove otherwise.
