NYT: Clinton Will Accept State Offer

The New York Times is reporting that Hillary Clinton is prepared to accept an offer to serve as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. News organizations have breathlessly followed Clinton's leaked indecision on the matter — as well as the behind-the-scenes negotiations of her vetting process, which included thorough investigations of her husband's post-presidential activities:

People close to the vetting said Mr. Clinton turned over the names of 208,000 donors to his foundation and library and agreed to all of the conditions requested by Mr. Obama's transition team, including restrictions on his future paid speeches and role at his international foundation.
