I doubt it

SWMNBN as The One's secretary of state for several reasons. (Via ABC News) Putting her in the top job at Foggy Bottom would put her in a position to leak all kinds of things. She could make news simply by walking a foreign minister out the front door of State to his car. It is unlikely she would allow herself to be put into in a position where she could be fired by The One or be lectured on foreign policy all the time by soon-to-be former senator from Delaware.

I believe SoS is #5 in line of succession. Close enough that a few "unfortunate accidents" might occur.

Wasn't John Kerry being considered for this position? I'd much rather see Hillary in the SoS position!
