Secretary of state: The case for Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton for secretary of state would be an inspired choice. Because of her years as first lady, very few Americans have more firsthand contacts with world leaders than Clinton. She is an extraordinary woman with an intellect and energy that she directs full throttle at everything she does. She received 18 million votes in the primaries. Obama and she split the popular vote. Millions of her supporters held their noses and voted for Obama only because they did not want another Republican in the White House. Hillary campaigned very hard for Obama and demonstrated that she is a team player. Shes ranked 68 out of 100 in terms of seniority in the Senate, where seniority means everything. It is now the right time for her to leave the Senate.

Giulianis run for office: Rudy never sees the light
Re Dont count out a Rudy run, Nov. 17: Rudy Guiliani is contemplating another run for the White House and maybe governor of N.Y. What he should do is move to Alaska, along with Peter King of Long Island. They should settle down in an area where the sun doesnt shine for three to four months, because these two will never see the light, no matter how hard they try.

Let the oil companies bail out the auto industry
If Detroits Big Three automakers go under, their epitaph will read: Rust in Peace. Let the oil companies bail them out, because after all, they are their best customers.
