Hillary Rodham Clinton became the 67th Secretary of State during a private swearing-in ceremony this afternoon in her office at the Russell Senate Office Building. Husband Bill Clinton and staffers were the only people in attendance, according to her now-former Senate office.
Clinton was sworn in by Kathleen "Kay" Oberly, a newly confirmed associate judge on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Oberly took the bench on Monday, just in time to swear in her childhood friend. The bible Clinton used while taking the oath was once used by her late father.
