Obama Nominates John Kerry For Secretary Of State

December 22, 2012 by  

Obama Nominates John Kerry For Secretary Of State, Sen. John Kerry, the former presidential candidate who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is Barack Obama’s choice to be the next secretary of state, the president announced Friday.

The senior senator from Massachusetts is noted for having the experience, gravitas and relationship-building skills that could help him succeed Hillary Clinton, the outgoing top U.S. diplomat.

Obama, making the announcement as Kerry and his wife looked on, praised the senator’s “extraordinarily distinguished Senate career” and military service “with valor” in the Vietnam War.

“Over these many years, John’s earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job-training,” Obama said. “I think it is fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as John Kerry, and this makes him a perfect choice to guide American diplomacy in the years ahead.”
