Madame Secretary.

Hillary has still to be confirmed by the Senate in the role, but isn't it refreshing to see, what were up until a few months ago bitter political opponents locked in the battle for the Democratic Presidential nomination, putting aside their personal interests to serve together in the new American Government for the greater good of their country? A Government which really is one of "all the talents."

Perhaps some of our elected representatives in the UK, and in Scotland, could learn some lessons from that?

"Hillary Clinton has been confirmed as US President Elect Barack Obama's secretary of state. Robert Gates will remain defence secretary in a national security team charged with recasting America's leadership role in the world. Mrs Clinton and Mr Gates, who have been at odds with Mr Obama in the past over foreign policy and defence issues, will implement his vision of rebuilding the US image abroad."
