Washington: Hillary Clinton often boasts of her record globetrotting mileage as US secretary of state, but she has been bested by an even more frequent flier: her successor John Kerry, officials said Monday.
According to a State Department tally, Kerry has now traveled 957,744 miles (1.541 million kilometers) since taking office in February 2013.
Just back from a European tour Friday, Kerry headed Sunday for Paris in his trusty Boeing 757 -- a new trip that has not yet even been added to his significant diplo-mileage.
In his nearly three years of relentless work traveling to 77 countries Kerry has officially edged out Clinton.
In her four years leading the State Department (January 2009-February 2013), she crisscrossed the globe in a record 956,733 miles (1.540 million kilometers), according to the department.
Kerry, soon to turn 72, has until January 2017 when President Barack Obama`s term ends to keep padding his new title.
