So it seems, my friends, that we have arrived at the final installment of the weeklong dramedy that has been When No Drama Meets Whoa, Drama: the Nomination of Hillary Clinton. The Times is reporting that Clinton has indeed accepted the president-elect’s much-written about/much-leaked-about offer to become the nation’s top diplomat.

Prepare, in the week ahead, for much more bipartisan hand-wringing about the power of “the Clintons,” perhaps some pointed commentary on the choice from Samantha Power, and several extraneous references to Lincoln’s Obama’s Team of Rivals.
