Secretary of State is the new U.S. Senator

So Hillary’s going to accept the Secretary of State job. At least, that's what I hear.

Many leading commenters are noting that no former Secretary of State has been elected President since James Buchanan, in 1857.

I hasten to add that no Secretary of State since James Buchanan will ever be elected President...until the next Secretary of State who is elected President.

I believe I made similar noises regarding the whole "no Senators since JFK" thing.
