Obama: Confident Kerry ‘Will Make Extraordinary Secretary Of State’

President Obama said that he was pleased by the bipartisan confirmation of John Kerry as the new secretary of state in on (Tuesday), adding Kerry would do an "extraordinary" job. Obama's full statement via the White House:

I am pleased that the Senate has confirmed John Kerry as our next Secretary of State with overwhelming bipartisan support. From his decorated service in Vietnam to his decades in the Senate as a champion of American global leadership, John’s distinguished career has prepared him to guide American diplomacy in the years ahead.

John has earned the respect of leaders around the world and the confidence of Democrats and Republicans in the Senate, and I am confident he will make an extraordinary Secretary of State. I look forward to his counsel and partnership in the years ahead as we ensure American leadership in the world and advance the interests and values that keep our nation strong.

4. Yes, the President got the person most

qualified for the job of SOS. Kerry's done so much good work and waited a long time for this and now it's Kerry's turn to shine in a job that it turns out he was born for.

Just imagine if some idiot had gotten in the White House instead of our President Obama. This is reason for high elation!

Thanks Pro Sense.. congratulations to us all!
