Default John Kerry to replace Hillary as Sec. of State

Quote:
Sources tell ABC News that President Obama has decided that he will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to be secretary of state.
For a variety of reasons including the finalization of the process, other pending Cabinet decisions, and - more immediately - the national reaction to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the news will not be announced in the next few days.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is recovering from an illness and a concussion she suffered upon fainting because of that illness, is set to retire in the next few weeks.

Rice would have been a better pick. Susan Rice's problem was that she was told to go out and parrot the CIA talking points she was given. If she doesn't do that, she probably loses her job and any shot at SOS. I think Republicans went too far. Sigh... now we're stuck with John f-ing Kerry.

So, did Hillary do a good job? I only know that she visited almost every single countries in the world. That should be some kind of feat, right?

Anyone who is surprised by this at all has no clue what's going on politically in this country.

It was a 2 person race all along. Republicans threw a hissy-fit over Susan Rice, so it's John Kerry.

A pretty damn good choice, as far as I'm concerned.

And to answer a poster above, yes, Hillary Clinton is the most traveled SOS ever.

Scott Brown may be a moderate on some things, but he also personally insured that $19 billion of tax payer money would go to the biggest banks (that was the price for his vote on the financial reform bill).

I don't think he is polarizing enough for anybody to really DISLIKE him, he's just vanilla enough that nobody cares about him.
