A prospective nominee, Clinton steps up calls to Capitol Hill

(CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton touched down in Chicago Monday and started working the phones – even before the official announcement she'd been nominated as Secretary of State - to inform key figures of the pending announcement, and tell them she looks forward to confirmation and working with them in the future, according to a source in Clinton’s Senate office. In the call to Governor Paterson, she officially informed him of her nomination, and that she was leaving the Senate.
