What about Bill?

The latest rumor-mongering has it that Hillary has effectively accepted the Secretary of State job, but that the announcement will not come until after Thanksgiving. Maybe they have to double-check the vetting or something, but there is no clarity as to the reason for a delayed announcement.

But, my big question is whether Bill Clinton might be given some role within the Obama administration, such as being an envoy in the Middle East, or some other negtotiation role, maybe with Iran or North Korea. Otherwise, his experience and knowledge and ability will be rather wasted since an appointment of Hillary to State will imply restrictions on Bill's private business activities.

Or... maybe he could take over Hillary's position in the U.S. Senate.

And then there is the other Bill, Bill Richardson. If he is not to get State, what role would make sense for him that he hasn't already filled back in the Clinton days (UN, Energy)?
