WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is under consideration for secretary of state in President-elect Barack Obama's administration, The Washington Post said Thursday.

Citing "increasing chatter in political circles," the Post said Clinton's name is being floated as a prospective secretary of state nominee -- along with the names of Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.; New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.; and former Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga.

Clinton's office referred questions on the report to the Obama transition team but Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor did not comment, the newspaper said.

Clinton is known for her work on international women's issues and human rights. The former first lady could also aid Obama's efforts to restore U.S. reputation among allies, the Post said.
