Not sure why you (gothistory Wrote) say that she was not nearly qualified enough to be Sec of St. First and foremost, she (as with all federal cabinet officials) are the handmaidens of the President. It is their primary duty to carry out the dictates of the President. I would say she was very well qualified for that function. The problem is with the President. If we had a good President, then maybe your point about Hillary's (lack of) qualifications would be appropriate.
