So shes obviously NOT the prez nor the vice prez but obama announced it today…so say hello to the newly appointed secretary of state: Hillary Clinton.
And what exactly does that mean? You ask.
The secretary is in charge of foreign policy and representing the United States to foreign governments — they also serve as the head of the U.S. Department of State. It is the most senior position in a president’s cabinet, and it is often filled by someone with deep foreign-policy or military experience. The secretary negotiates with foreign leaders and governments on behalf of the president, advises the president on foreign policy and supervises the State Department’s activities overseas, including its consulates and embassies.
