Can Kerry fill Hillary Clinton's shoes?
Interesting little tidbit from Tamara Wittes, Direcotr, Saban Center for Middle East Policy
"On a different note: changes at the top of America's foreign policy structure are always worth comment. But to me, the handover from Hillary Clinton to John Kerry highlighted something especially noteworthy -- the extent to which women's presence at the very heart of international diplomacy is now taken for granted. Not only are women equal around the foreign policy table, but women's empowerment is now recognized as central to successful global development. In a lighthearted piece for FP.com, I wrote about this new reality -- a generational transformation worth celebrating, even as we welcome the first male secretary of state in eight years."Her full piece is posted at FP.com, but you can read an excerpt at Brookings.edu as well.
