What Am I Missing About Hillary and the Cabinet?

The report that Hillary is under consideration to be appointed Secretary of State has me perplexed. Isn't she predestined to be the Secretary of Health and Human Services? Isn't this her hour to lead the move to national health care that she herself did so much to launch in the early 90's?

Why Secretary of State? Is she really qualified for that post? I mean, on the merits of her education, experience, character and intellect? I wonder. And what about Bill? The one cabinet position most vulnerable to damage from his erratic and occasionally reckless behavior is precisely Secretary of State.

It is a fine idea to put her in the cabinet. The Department of Health and Human Services would make far more sense.
