Hillary Clinton's future

November 14, 2008 1:03:36 PM PST
So what happens if Hillary Clinton becomes Secretary of State? Where to begin?

There's a change in New York, to be sure - someone would have to fill the four years she has left in office. And what of her much-touted domestic agenda? That would be out the window.

She pushed her international experience during her campaign for the White House, so that would come in handy. But she and the President-to-be aren't exactly chummy-chum, so would he want his once-bitter rival charged with carrying out his foreign policy? One thing's for sure: it would be hard for her to run against Barack Obama when she's in his Cabinet.

There are - whenever a Clinton is involved - several possible melodramas. And we're keeping track of the various scenarios. We'll have the latest on Clinton's meeting with Obama, and on the transition, tonight at 11.

And we'll have more on the story everyone's talking about today - our investigation into MTA subway track workers, caught on tape NOT WORKING. Instead, they're seen taking long breakfast breaks followed by relaxing in parks or at the beach and then heading to an outdoor gym. At a time when the MTA is financially strapped and considering cutting service and raising fares, the report by Eyewitness News investigative reporter Jim Hoffer has resonated. We'll have any fallout, tonight at 11.

And Tappy Phillips tonight on the horrible fate of a family in Brooklyn whose apartment house literally crumbled around them. They had to run for their lives. Lost inside their home were some cable television boxes - and now, months later, they say the cable company is hounding them to pay for the destroyed boxes. The family tuned in to Tappy and got 7 On Your Side. (Watch a preview here)

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Lee Goldberg's weekend AccuWeather forecast, and Scott Clark with the night's sports. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11, right after a Barbara Walters special 20/20 -- on that woman who transgendered into a man and who had a baby because he/she wasn't completely not a woman anymore, if all that makes sense.

Have a good weekend.
