Washington, Nov 21 (ANI): It is almost certain that President elect Barack Obama will name Hillary Rodham Clinton as Unites States next Secretary of State, Democratic sources have said.
Obama is on track to name Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) as his Secretary of State shortly after Thanksgiving, Politico quoted two senior Obama aides, as saying.
The officials said they expect her to accept the nomination.
The choice unites the two rivals in the most protracted presidential primary in American history, giving Obama the Team of Rivals Cabinet he had promised.
Former President Bill Clinton authorized unprecedented disclosures about his finances to Obamas vetting team, and transition lawyers are satisfied, officials said. (ANI)
