Maybe Secretary Clinton will tell us why the last time she visited Damascus, Syria with husband Bill and kid, she ran away from Syria in fear, terrified. Does she remember why?

I am pleased to hear of her confirmation. I look forward to watching Hillary Rodham Clinton's work around the world. I was inspired to have read that she said this in her confirmation hearing:

The State Department will have a very active women's office, a very active office on human trafficking, a modern form of slavery, which is primarily a slavery of women and girls."

@ SNP in Syria -- I think if your trying to put some fear into Mrs. Clinton before you say something you might regret remember there is over 300 million of us Americans how many Syrians?

Sir your biggest hope should be to establish peace not bring up the past.

"We as Americans will support Secretary Clinton and keep this in mind "We stand together" now my suggestion to you is to apologize on this blog to the very place where you can communicate freely."

Congratulations Hillary, we now have the best SoS possible, and boy do you have your work cut out for you. But who better positioned, better prepared, able to bring together factions, and see things from all sides, but most especially from the side of the weakest and most vulnerable? Today is a great day, thank you for your public service.

@ Donald in Virginia -- Better not think too hard, because your thinking is wrong. We appreciate Mrs. Clinton, an accomplished achiever, regardless of her policies. 300 million Americans are not a threat to Syria. We survived Assyrians, Babylonians, Greek, Roman, Ottoman empires, Genkizkhan, few crusaders campaigns and modern day genkiz, the Khazzar of Israel and we still kicking, pushing and punishing.

Peace with the murderous Khazzars? They don't want peace; they want to sell guns and rob Middle East oil. If we open our doors for these Khazzars we all will be living like Gazan. If they seriously want peace, why not start implementing the few dozens U.N. passed resolutions since 1948. So don't read fear mongering into the comment, I never forget the scared face of her and kid when they left Syria earlier than Bill, just wants to know what happened, that is all.
