    US President-elect Barack Obama has nominated his former rival Hillary Clinton as his secretary of state.
    Mr Obama described the former first lady as a woman of "tremendous stature" who had his "complete confidence".
    Mrs Clinton lost out to Mr Obama when the two contested a bitterly fought race for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.
    At a news conference in Chicago, Mr Obama also announced nominations for other key National Security team posts.
    Mr Obama said the time had come for a "new dawn of American leadership to overcome the challenges of the 21st century, and to seize the opportunities embedded in those challenges".
    Mr Obama said Robert Gates would remain as defence secretary, while retired Marine Gen. James Jones was named as White House national security adviser.
