November Democratic Fall Lineup

AP via Yahoo! News:

Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel said Friday he would consider serving as Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's running mate if asked, but he doesn't expect to be on any ticket.

Hagel's vocal criticism of the Bush administration since the 2003 invasion of Iraq has touched off speculation that if Obama were to pick a Republican running mate, it might be Hagel. Hagel said in an interview with The Associated Press that after devoting much of his life to his country — in the Senate and the U.S. Army — he would have to consider any offer.
BUT, Hagel could serve as the Secretary of Defense which solves my problem of who would serve in that position if my favored Gen. Wesley Clark filled the VP spot.

So, here's my picks so far:

President — Sen. Barack Obama
VP — Gen. Wesley Clark
Secretary of State — Sen. Joe Biden
Secretary of Defense — Sen. Chuck Hagel

Hillary stays in the Senate and moves the agenda.

As VP Hillary would be President of the Senate; what kind of power would she have to move the agenda in a position like that?
