Who won this thing, again?

I heard today that Hillary Clinton (D., wherever works) has plans to vastly expand her empire at State once she assumes the position. International interests currently managed by the military and the Commerce and Treasury Departments are in her sights, with more doubtless to be named later.

Apparently the plan is that she'll serve as Supreme Being at Foggy Bottom, and control large areas of U.S. interest in the international sphere currently the purview of other department heads. Eventually she may hold all decision-making power for international interests. If you have a copy of the Constitution, take a look at the section that deals with international relations, treaties, economic and military matters.

I heard that Clinton was defeated in the Democrat primaries, but this power grab would seem to put the lie to that belief. Who, exactly, will be president next year?
