Samantha Power, who was removed from the Obama team after calling Hillary Clinton a monster during the presidential primaries. She is working on the transition team for the agency Hillary is expected to lead, reports Associated press.

State Department officials said Friday that Samantha Power is among a group of foreign policy experts that the president-elect's office selected to help the incoming administration prepare for Clinton's anticipated nomination as secretary of state. The Obama transition team's Web site includes Power's name as one of 14 members of the "Agency Review Team" for the State Department.

Clinton's role at State is expected to be announced after the Thanksgiving weekend. Power's apparent rehabilitation is another sign of that impending move.

Clinton's office declined to comment on Power's inclusion in the State Department transition, but an official close to the Obama transition team said Power had "made a gesture to bury the hatchet" with Clinton and that it had been well-received.

Power has been given an official State Department e-mail address and has been seen in the building, said the State officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the transition. A State Department spokesman referred questions to Obama's transition team, which later declined to comment.

...Power told the Scotsman newspaper that Clinton would stop at nothing to defeat Obama. "She is a monster, too," Power said in the interview. "She is stooping to anything." Power added that "the amount of deceit she has put forward is really unattractive.""

The remarks led to Power being removed from the Obama campaign team. Power is incredibly accomplished-- a pulitzer-prize winning author and Harvard professor, and it had been predicted that someone with her strengths would be brought back into the fold after the election. 

ABC News reports, 

"Sources tell ABC News that Power has been on board from the very beginning of the State Department transition team, publicly or not.

A Democratic source says that Power reached out to Clinton after the election to apologize and it was "well received" by the New York senator."
