WASHINGTON, D.C. (CNN) - Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had some laughs Thursday afternoon during her speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.
She used the time to recap her four years as the country's top diplomat, which the organization's president says will be hard to top.
"At the risk of leaving you all with an image that probably isn't good, I would simply say that John Kerry has some fairly large Manolo Blahniks to fill. I want to thank the Secretary again," said Richard Haass.
"Oh Richard that was very good. Did Susan come up with that? That is very funny," said Clinton.
Kerry will be sworn in as the 68th Secretary of State after his resignation from the Senate takes effect Friday afternoon.
