A commenter on JuanitaJean.com mentioned she couldn’t remember the last time a white male had been U.S. Secretary of State. I had to look it up. It was Warren Christopher, President Bill Clinton’s first Secretary of State. He appointed Madeleine Albright Secretary of State for his second term. In fact, three of the last four have been female. The fourth was war hero General Colin Powell (Ret.).
In other words it has been more than fifteen years since the last time a white male was U.S. Secretary of State.
