Mike Allen / The Politico:
Hillary Clinton could be Sec. of State  —  Several Obama transition advisers are strongly advocating Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for secretary of State, a move that would create the ultimate “Team of Rivals” cabinet, according to officials involved in the discussions.

The Politico:
Obama gets the Clinton band back together  —  Here's how you can tell the campaign is over and the transition has begun: Barack Obama's aides now wear suits and ties, their desks are in the Federal Building on 6th Street in Washington, D.C.—and Clintonites are everywhere.
Marc Ambinder:
Obama Met With Clinton  —  Three independent sources say that President-elect Barack Obama met yesterday with Sen. Hillary Clinton in Chicago.  —  The meeting took place at Obama's transition offices in the mid-afternoon.  —  It did not appear on the schedule that's distributed to Clinton staff and handlers.
The Politico:
Obama holds secret meeting with HRC  —  President-elect Barack Obama met Thursday with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) at his transition headquarters in Chicago as a growing chorus of advisers pushes her for secretary of state.  —  This would give him a “Team of Rivals” …

FIRST THOUGHTS: HILLARY AT STATE?  —  From Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, Domenico Montanaro, and Carrie Dann  —  *** Hillary at State?  As we've learned with anything regarding the Clintons, one never knows exactly how serious the speculation might be.  But let's assume the news …

Bailout to Nowhere  —  Not so long ago, corporate giants with names like PanAm, ITT and Montgomery Ward roamed the earth.  They faded and were replaced by new companies with names like Microsoft, Southwest Airlines and Target.  The U.S. became famous for this pattern of decay and new growth.

Wall Street Journal:
Nancy Pelosi's Motown Juggling Act  —  What do bleeding Detroit auto makers, Colombia and green groups have in common?  Not a lot, unless you are Nancy Pelosi.  —  If there was a moment that highlights to what extent the Democratic Party has become captive to its special interests, this might be it.

A Ticket to The Hague for Dick Cheney?  —  Gene Burns is one of the nation's most popular talk radio hosts.  For years he has dismissed accounts of torture; America, he has said, does not torture.  But last night, after watching Torturing Democracy and realizing that he had not understood …
Walter Pincus / Washington Post:
CIA Chief: Iraq Not Main Front  —  CIA Director Michael V. Hayden said yesterday that al-Qaeda remains the single greatest threat to the United States but that Iraq is no longer the central front in the broader war on terrorism.  —  “Today, the flow of money, weapons and foreign fighters …

Paul Krugman / New York Times:
Depression Economics Returns  —  The economic news, in case you haven't noticed, keeps getting worse.  Bad as it is, however, I don't expect another Great Depression.  In fact, we probably won't see the unemployment rate match its post-Depression peak of 10.7 percent, reached in 1982 (although I wish I was sure about that).
Washington Post:
The YouTube Presidency  —  The White House has gone YouTube.  —  Today, President-elect Obama will record the weekly Democratic address not just on radio but also on video — a first.  The address, typically four minutes long, will be turned into a YouTube video and posted on Obama's transition site …
Rich Lowry / The Corner:
McCain Campaign Retrospective  —  I wrote a piece for the new issue on the McCain campaign, focusing especially on the endgame and the fight over Palin.  I know a lot of people are already sick of this stuff, but I wanted to talk to people in the campaign to satisfy my curiosity as much as anything else.
