There's now reports (via HuffPo) that he flat-out offered her Secretary of State.

I'll stick by what I said before. From Obama's perspective, this is very smart: she'd do a fine job, and it sends the right messages as he's putting the cabinet together. But I could easily see Hillary preferring to be a force in the Senate for years to come. (The idea that she wouldn't end up heavily involved in health care legislation if she were in the Senate is laughable. She would be in the thick of it.)

I don't get the "she loses her senate seat forever" thing--she's pretty popular here in New York. Her seat would go to a Dem, and if she wanted to return to the Senate at the end of her term, well, that could be arranged.
