Even thou Hillary is more hawkish than Obama, I think she will be an asset when it comes to solving the Israel and Palestine situation. This cabinet position will put her out of the 2012 presidential race. She can’t campaign or raise money while serving as the  Secretary of State. It also removes her from the senate, where she could have become a torn in Obama’s side.

Clinton and Carter tried to bring a slew of fresh faces and it got them on the wrong footing. Obama is a student of history, and it is serving him well.
