Hillary Clinton the Next Secretary of Defense?

Yes, it might actually happen. Politico is reporting on the close ties between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. In it, the two Cabinet members basically seem to ignore the President to launch a more grown-up foreign and military policy. But one part is particularly interesting:

 Gates, who has long signaled an eagerness to retire, just launched what appears to be his final initiative, a tough push to scale back the Pentagon’s gargantuan bureaucracy. Clinton, with her hawkish image and ties to Gates and to military brass, would be his most logical successor — and some of her most senior allies have begun quietly to float the notion.

I hear Madame Clinton is coming out with a new book. The working title?

"Fail Yourself to Success: The Hillary Way!"
