Clinton, in her interview, indicated she is unlikely to be persuaded to stay on beyond the immediate transition.

“I’m not really open to staying longer, but I also know that we have to be conscious of the work that has to be done,” she told the Post. “And again, I’ll have to talk to the president.”

Clinton, often cited as one of the most popular members of Obama’s cabinet, has said she intends to take time off from public life. If Obama wins re-election, analysts say possible successors include Democratic Senator John Kerry and Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.
