    Obama Considering John Kerry For Job Of Defense Secretary -- Washington Post

    President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus.

    Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

    More News On U.S. Senator John Kerry Being Considered For Secretary Of Defense

    Secretary of Defense John Kerry? -- UPI
    John Kerry 'is frontrunner for Defense Secretary job as Susan Rice set to replace Hillary as Secretary of State' -- Daily Mail
    Kerry being eyed as secretary of defense, report says -- Boston Herald
    John Kerry eyed as replacement for outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta: report -- New York Daily News

    My Comment: The New York Times has a different take on John Kerry. What's my take .... as I had mentioned in previous posts, the White House wants someone who would be compliant to their policy of slashing the U.S. Defense budget .... if that is their criteria, then John Kerry would be the perfect person for that job.

    I would normally say, “You gotta be kidding me!” But, not with this president.

    We have been talking about that in my state for about 3 months now, I live in MA.

    The odds are decent but I think the odds are higher that our governor, Devaul Patrick, will be replacing Holder as Attorney General.

    Hmm.

    You folks nearly put a guy up as Commander in Chief who protested for the Vietnam war, then went to France and had an auto accident with a Catholic Priest, killing his passenger.

    Fer sure..
