Clinton for State?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The rumor mill is in full force this evening:

From NBC’s Andrea Mitchell:
Two Obama advisers have told NBC News that Hillary Clinton is under consideration to be secretary of state. Would she be interested? Those who know Clinton say possibly. But her office says that any decisions about the transition are up to the president-elect and his team.

Clinton was seen taking a flight to Chicago today, but an adviser says it was on personal business. It is unknown whether she had any meeting or conversation with Obama while there.
Senator Nita Lowey? Senator David Patterson? And kudos to reader BonnCaruso for suggesting this for Clinton in our poll earlier this week. Update: Patterson has a diary up at Kos this evening.

And more transition rumors, from Arizona:
I know a guy who knows a guy who is friends with Rahm Emanual's Secretary and he thinks that Janet [Napolitano] will be appointed White House Counsel.
