Hearty congratulations to Hillary Rodham Clinton on her appointment as the Secretary of State of the United States of America. I also appreciate President-elect Barack Obama for the appropriate selection of the Secretary of State for his cabinet. In my opinion, Hillary is one of the most competent women in the United States for appointment to such an important post. Meanwhile, I endorse Hillary Clinton's statement which she made recently saying “America is a place founded on the idea that everyone should have the right to live up to his or her God-given potential, and it is that same ideal that must guide America's purpose in the world today. And while we are determined to defend our freedom and liberties at all costs we also reach out to the world again, seeking common cause and higher ground.”
I sincerely hope that the former first Lady Hillary Clinton will be successful in her new assignment and contribute significantly to the overall improvement of the United States' international relations and global communications.
