President-elect Barack Obama has chosen his
former chief rival for the Democratic nomination to be his
secretary of state.

At a news conference Monday in Chicago, Obama announced that
he's chosen Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to lead the State
Department.

He described her as a friend and colleague, as well as a source
of counsel and a tough opponent. He added that she's someone of
tremendous stature who can advance America's interest around the
world.

In order to make it possible for his wife to take the job, party
officials say former President Bill Clinton agreed to disclose the
names of contributors to his foundation and step away from
day-to-day management of it. He'll also submit his speaking
schedule
