I thought Andrew Sullivan‘s assessment was interesting:

My sense is that Clinton, the secretary of state, shares Obama’s views and that her reflexively neoconservative approach to Israel will moderate once she is no longer a senator from New York. My sense is also that Obama intends to use Clinton in ways not seen in a secretary of state for a very long time. And my guess is that she would not have taken the job if she were not convinced that she has a chance to go down in history as an architect of a breakthrough Middle East peace agreement.
