Talks on Clinton as secretary of state 'on track'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A spokesman for Hillary Rodham Clinton says the New York senator is still in discussion over whether to accept the secretary of state's job, though the talks are "very much on track."

Spokesman Philippe Reines and other Clinton officials flatly denied reports Friday that she had accepted the job offer. But officials in both camps said they have every reason to believe that President-elect Barack Obama will announce her as his choice shortly after Thanksgiving.

Said an official in the Clinton camp: "They're just talking about the state of the world and what's next." The official spoke on condition of anonymity because neither Obama or Clinton are prepared to go public.
