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.
John O. Brennan, Obamas chief counterterrorism adviser, is a leading contender for the CIA job if he wants it, officials said. If Brennan goes ahead with his plan to leave government, Michael J. Morell, the agencys acting director, is the prohibitive favorite to take over permanently. Officials cautioned that the White House discussions are still in the early stages and that no decisions have been made.

The Lebanese twins will factor into the scenario. John Kerry has just been dropped into the scandal.
I don’t know if anybody knows this, but John Kerry did serve in Vietnam, by the way.
About the only way that Massachusetts can end his stay as a U.S. Senator! Why not put Elizabeth Warren in the Obama administration, too? Then, Massachusetts can start anew!
Oh right, just the guy we need for the job! What F’n retard even suggested it? OK, I know he had an outstanding war record, they say he even served in Vietnam and received many life threatening wounds that earned him 3 purple hearts. Sorry bad pick! Find someone else we can “Trust”, not a political opportunist and questionable Traitor.
Maybe John F’n Kerry will hit on Holly, since he is an experienced gigolo.
Is Jane Fonda his second choice?
And he must have been kicked in the head every day he was there.
Socialist - check
Anti-American - check
Married into uber-wealthy elitism - check
Opposed to industry and productivity - check
Never held a real job - check
Willing to exempt himself from rules which oppress fellow citizens - check
Proven coward - check
Absolute contempt for rule of law - check
Looks like a good Dem candidate to me!
The only upside of this is it might give Scott Brown the chance to win that Senate seat in a special election.
Brown is finished.
Nothing more than a big FU to our military.
...if anyone needed another example of Odungo’s hatred of the US........here it is
Well, it is a way to get him out of the Senate.
That's what I was thinking. ONLY JANE FONDA would be a worse choice....and just barely.
This is a wise choice on the part of Bronco Bama.
Kerry has so many Purple Hearts that he has to carry them around in a wheelbarrow.
He is one smart cookie too. Look how he got his clammy hands on the ketchup fortune just by looking like a member of the Addams family.
Might as well, just look at what a great job John F’n did as Obama’s debate sparring partner.
