    John Kerry will be nominated for secretary of state

    Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama on Friday will nominate Sen. John Kerry, the former presidential candidate who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to be the next secretary of state, a senior administration official told CNN.

    could have done worse. i'm not thrilled about Clinton stepping down, but Kerry now has a chance to rise to the occasion like she did.

    as a side benefit, his nomination should sail through, so at least we won't endure weeks of hyperpartisan posturing in the senate.

    I do not envy him.

    You... want to be in politics?

    My grandfather told me something very important. He said: "As long as you live, don't get into politics".

    I have turned down 3 invitations to join political parties thus far, and will continue to do so.

    yeah, i'd love it. however, i doubt that i'd last too many terms. many of my ideas would probably just piss people off right before going nowhere. the only consolation / vindication would be, "look what this guy said we needed to concentrate on 50 years ago."

    perhaps i'd be better off starting locally.

    There may be some of that, but I don't expect to see much of the swiftboat in this. The senate repects Kerry.

    No need to go back to the Hanoi Hall of Fame days. Let's just look at his committee attendance records for the past ten years.

    Do you know how Mass would handle filling his seat off-hand? Governor appointment or special election?
