Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will introduce the man chosen as her successor, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry, at his Senate confirmation hearing today.

Clinton will be there to endorse the man chosen as her successor and to warn about the big job Senator John Kerry faces, dealing with expanding terrorist threats in North Africa.

“We need to work together to accelerate a diplomatic campaign to increase pressure on Al Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb and other terrorist groups in the region,” Clinton said.

As the former Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry is expected to be quickly confirmed.
