Hillary Clinton formally resigned Friday as America’s 67th secretary of state, admitting in her farewell speech that her final days in office have been “bittersweet,” but that she was proud “to reflect on the distance that we’ve traveled, and to take stock of what we’ve done.” In a letter to President Obama, Clinton wrote that she was “more convinced than ever in the strength and staying power of America’s global leadership.” John Kerry will be sworn in as her successor in a private ceremony later in the day. And as Clinton pointed out with her tongue firmly in cheek, Kerry has “some very large Manolo Blahniks to fill.”
