President Barack Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel are hailing Saturday's elections in Afghanistan, which are expected to produce the country's first-ever democratic transfer of power. VOA's Michael Bowman reports, although Afghanistan's next president may not be known for weeks, the Obama administration hopes the new leader will finalize a bilateral security agreement to keep a residual U.S. military presence in the country.
