I spoke with Voice of Russia last night about the nomination of Senator John Kerry as Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton.
The line was that Kerry is a doubly "safe pair of hands". Internationally, his pragmatic approach has worked well in encounters with foreign leaders. Domestically, he will not encounter the resistance from Congress which doomed the nomination of Susan Rice this month and embarrassed the Obama Administration.
And Clinton's legacy for US foreign policy? Well, I responded, that depends if you think the Obama years have had a clear and coherent policy.
