I would not recommend GLOBAL-set-key for this.
1) It may be that the command 'vc-finish-logentry' would not do the
   right thing if it is issued in a buffer that is not the *VC-log* buffer.
2) In many other modes the keys combo C-c C-c is used for what is
   the natural "finish" command in their modes. (E.g this message
   is sent using C-c C-c.)
   Such modes will override your global definition (wouldn't they?),
   so they will still work, but it not very elegant.

In stead define a command on a key in the mode where it will be used.
The key map in the *VC-Log* buffer is named 'vc-log-entry-mode'
and thus you can have this in your .emacs:

    (define-key vc-log-entry-mode "\C-as" 'vc-finish-logentry)

But first i think you will have to undefine C-a (go to beginning of line)
so it can be a prefix key.

(I have not tested this)
