Clinton and Obama Unite

The former presidential hopefuls from the Democratic Party, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, are expected to unite with each other in the cabinet now that President-elect Obama has taken over. Clinton is expected to leave her senate position and accept the invitation from Obama to become the new Secretary of State.

According to the guardian.co.uk article, Obama selected Clinton so the two can build a broad coalition administration. The article goes on to say that Clinton would be well placed to become the country's dominant voice in foreign affairs, replacing Condoleezza Rice. Since being elected senator for New York, she has specialized in foreign affairs and defense.

According to the New York Times article, Clinton's selection is still to be formalized and will not be announced until after Thanksgiving.

The two articles are both solid articles that take completely different angles on the same story. The New York Times article goes into how this is an interesting move for Obama because only months ago, Clinton and himself were bashing each other on how one would make a better President than the other.

The guardian.co.uk article takes the angle on how Clinton is the perfect fit for the opening in Obama's cabinet. The article talks about how Clinton is perfectly qualified for such a job.

Overall, both articles are well written with solid facts and interviews to back up their angles.
