Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is under consideration for a top Cabinet position in President-elect Barack Obama's forthcoming administration. The New York senator, defeated by Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, met with him in Chicago on Thursday to discuss a possible appointment, the Associated Press reports.

According to the AP, Clinton's motorcade was spotted departing from the office where Obama is overseeing his transition to the White House, and a Democratic official confirmed the two met. Two Democratic officials told the New York Post that Clinton is a serious contender for secretary of state.

While there's long been speculation about a Clinton role in an Obama administration, talk has ramped up considerably since last week's election. An appointment would be seen as a way of healing any lingering division in the Democratic party over the two rivals' hotly contested primary race; many of Obama's current advisers, like transition chief John Podesta and chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, also served in President Bill Clinton's administration.

Other contenders for the country's top diplomatic position include New Mexico governor Bill Richardson and Massachusetts senator John Kerry, both former presidential hopefuls, the Post reports. (The Advocate)
