U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday heaped praise on William Hague after his resignation as British foreign secretary, and even went as far as conferring on him a premature knighthood via Twitter. Kerry said in a tweet on his page on the social media site, to which a photograph of the two men was attached, "Will miss working so closely with my friend Sir William -- when @WilliamJHague spoke, we all listened." Hague said on Monday he was stepping down from his post as Britain's top diplomat after four years in the job, an unexpected move prompted by a government reshuffle by Prime Minister David Cameron.
