As the US Senate confirmed Hillary Rodham Clinton to become secretary of state on Wednesday, President Barack Obama moved to make his imprint on US foreign policy, mobilizing a fresh team of veteran advisers and reaching out to world leaders. The Senate voted 94-2, with two Republicans opposing. Republicans and Democrat alike said her swift confirmation was necessary so that Obama can begin tackling the major foreign policy issues at hand, including two wars, increased violence in the Middle East and the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.

John Kerry, a Democrat and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
