Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton the Secretary of state nominee hit it out of the ball park on Tuesday at her confirmation hearing in front of the foreign relations committee hosted by John Kerry. He seemed kind of snarky at the beginning of the hearings but later seemed to change his attitude. Senator Clinton answered a range of question ranging from foreign donations made to her husband's organization The Clinton Global Initiative. She knew not only the issues of the day but also came across as warm. Hillary Clinton is going to be the best SOS and of course she will make the best President when she runs again in 2016.
We wish the Secretary of State very well. President elect Barack Obama will benefit from her appointment only if he chooses to listen to her before he listens to his staffers who do not know the same thing she knows. Remember the President needs to have her back and she must have his as they make this journey together.
