    Hillary will step down because the Benghazi facts will come out and the evil ***** is in it up to her eyeballs along with obama.

    True dat. And if she runs for POTUS in 2016, this will come back and bite her in the ass. And I hope whoever the GOP nominee is, he/she (assuming it would be Condi Rice) should milk it for all it's worth.

    She was an excellent Secretary of State, and she'd be an excellent president. If she chooses to run and I've still got enough life in me to check an absentee ballot, I'd vote for her in a heartbeat.

    What did she do as Secretary that caused you to have this high opinion of her?

    Re: State Dept: Hillary to Step Down Despite Obama Win.....

    It's common for a SECSTATE to step down after one term. As far as the high offices go, it is a pretty hectic and tiring lifestyle. It is CONSTANT travel and participating in endless, yet important, meetings with foreign dignitaries while being jet lagged.

    Of all the cabinet level positions, and perhaps even including the Presidency, it is probably the most stressful and emotionally draining. I canít blame anyone for only wanting one term of that.

    I can certainly say that the morale of those in the Foreign Service have improved greatly under her leadership. She has visited more countries than any other Secretary of State in history. And as someone who has played a part in three of those visits I can say they aren’t vacation trips. From the minute she lands to the minute she takes off she is all business. She has carried out her expected duties better than most in that position.

    The jury is still out on the Benghazi incident. If it turns out she personally denied the request for additional security that will certainly taint her record.

    But she also hasn’t had any great accomplishments. SECSTATES rarely do. They mostly fly around and try and keep little fires from turning into huge ones. She has done a good job at that.

    I think she would make a decent President and a very good Supreme Court Justice.
