Kissinger: Hillary an 'Outstanding' Pick for State Job

Sunday, 16 Nov 2008 01:09 PM

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said Sunday that Sen. Hillary Clinton would be an excellent choice as America's top diplomat in Barack Obama's administration.

"She is a lady of great intelligence, demonstrated enormous determination and would be an outstanding appointment" as secretary of state, Kissinger said at the World Economic Forum's India Economic Summit at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi.

"If it is true, it will show a couple of things,'' Kissinger said. "It shows great courage on the part of the president-elect to appoint a very strong personality, who has an independent constituency, into a Cabinet position. It also shows willingness on the part of Clinton to subordinate herself to someone whom she lost out to.''

Clinton and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson are considered the top contenders for the position of secretary of state.

Kissinger was as secretary of state from 1973 to 1977.
