It's all but official that Hillary Clinton will relinquish her Senate role to accept the nomination for secretary of state from President-elect Barack Obama.

When Bill Clinton was president, Hillary took a backseat (at least, as much of a backseat as she ever could or would given her personality) to support her husband as the powerhouse in their twosome.
