Richardson for Secretary of State?

Bill Richardson is in fact my first choice for Secretary of State. Although, this would be another case of a Clinton veteran in the Obama administration while Barack Obama had "promised" that he was going to "turn the page." That can cut both ways, but he would give a lot of instant credibility to our diplomatic efforts and he would be able to hit the ground running. It would also be an indirect tip of the hat by Barack to the Clinton camp and the Clinton legacy that was bashed so enthusiastically by the Progressives during the primary campaign.

Barack is of course still free to pick someone else using criteria of his own, but it is starting to seem as though he is intent on picking the best people for the job rather than picking people that the Progressives might be enthusiastic about.
