A senior administration official said on Friday that President Barack Obama will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. as his next secretary of state this afternoon from the White House.
The 69-year-old, who began his tenure in the Senate in 1985, is expected to be a shoo-in during the Congressional confirmation process and will fill the vacancy left by outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The expected announcement will come after the president's top choice for the spot, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, took herself out of the running for the post given the controversy over her reaction to the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

Great . . . two national traitors in a row in a very sensitive position. I feel so sorry for this country and what it’s turned in to.
He was against him before he was for him.
Don’t the dims have any bright new stars? It seems they keep digging up their worst from their past.........
Senator John Kerry as next secretary of state
Here he comes to save the day....!
3 Purple Hearts, 1 Band-Aid. And a Silver Star for gunning down in a single fleeing enemy soldier.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee _ and possibly the next secretary of state _ says mistakes were made at the State Department in the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya, but Congress shares some of the blame. Kerry also faults lawmakers for failing to provide sufficient funds to the State Department.
We just might see a President John Kerry after all. Bet he’ll be running.
We’d have been better off if the Mayans were right.
“Senator Kerry, I remind you that you are under oath. Is it not true that you were dishonorably discharged? And if not, will you release your records to demonstrate that fact?”
Well, he was in Viet Nam, doncha know...
Wasn’t that where he got his butt shot off?
Tonkin is rotating in his grave right now...
Wasnt that where he got his butt shot off?

Target that big hard to miss.
“Kiss my Arse”...”Mark the spot.- YOU are all Arse”.
Kerry just another in the line of losers and Arseholes the people of MA just have foisted upon us.
IF they hate “US” that bad, maybe they are the ones that should secede.
They are saving their Hispanics for 2016. Mayor Julian Castro or Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Pass amnesty, then run one of these “diverse candidates”.
By best guess is, he will be confirmed by at least 90 votes.
Sad sad sad.
