Rice: I think Clinton will do a fine job as secretary of state
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Outgoing US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had high praise Monday for her designated successor, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, and for President-elect Barack Obama's nominee for US ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice.
She told reporters in response to a question about Obama's choices for the two posts that the three women also have a link to Stanford University in California.
"I know Senator Clinton very well," Rice said. "I have known her since she brought her freshman daugter (Chelsea) to Stanford when I was provost at Stanford."
"She's someone of high intelligence, great integrity and in fact has what one needs most in this job which is a profound commitment to the United States, its interests, its values ... and so I think she will do a really very fine job as secretary of state."
