Best Answer

Henry Clay for one- he became Secretary of State in 1824 and the so-called corrupt bargain. Hillary Clinton, the current Secretary of State, made a bid for the presidential nomination and Lincoln's Secretary of State, William Seward, was the front-runner for the nomination at the Republican Convention of 1860 which eventually nominated Lincoln. There may have been others.

I'm going to assume that you are referring to the 2008 United States Presidential election (as this occurance has happened several times before in U.S. History). For this election, unsuccessful Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton became Barack Obama's Secretary of State.

Who was the oldest Presidential candidate?

Peter Cooper (b. February 12, 1791) was the candidate of the Greenback party in 1876, when he was 85 years old. Among the 2 biggest parties: * In 1984 President Ronald Reagan became the oldest US presidential candidate, when he successfully ran for re-election. He turned 73 that February. * In 1996 Senator Bob Dole became the oldest US presidential candidate to run for a first term. He turned 73 that July. * Senator John McCain is 72, and is therefore not the oldest candidate. He would however be the oldest person sworn in as a new president, if he is elected. If he serves two terms, he will be the oldest president.
