Senate Confirms Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Senator Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D - Mass.) made the following statement today after an overwhelming 94 - 2 vote by the Senate to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of State, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"After healthy debate from both the Foreign Relations Committee and today from the full Senate, I'm pleased and honored to be among the first to call my colleague and dear friend Hillary Clinton ‘Madam Secretary,'" said the Chairman. "Hillary Clinton will do a tremendous job rebuilding our alliances, strengthening our international standing, and advancing America's interests abroad. I congratulate her on this much-deserved diplomatic role and look forward to working with the State Department and President Obama to restore America's rightful place in the international arena."
