Rumormill bombshell: Senator Slick Willie from the great state of New York?

Things that make you go "hmmmmm"

Rumors are fun -- especially political rumors. Here's a new one gaining some strength: Senator Bill Clinton.

Here's how it goes. Hillary seems almost inevitably to be the Secretary of State. In order to be named to the cabinet, there were certain concessions that her husband would have to make so there would be no potential for "quid pro quo" impropriety with his dealings overseas. What incentive would the former President have to do so? How about being appointed to her former Senate seat? Democrat New York Governor Patterson has the sole power to fill that opening until the next general election. Could a deal have already been worked out?
