  1. Clinton is preferable to Jimmy Carter, that’s for sure…

  2. Can the SG come from any of the five permanent members on the SC? I thought that was against the rules.

  3. I think it is by practice only that those states are excluded, rather than by formal rule.

  4. How would the U.S. government have a ’say’ in the matter? As far as I could tell, bar political practicalities such as Hillary running for office, they would have no compelling influence over Clinton if he put his name forward.

  5. The SecGen is chosen by recommendation of the Security Council, where the US government has a seat and a veto.

    That is the least of the three issues, however.
