Report: John Kerry to Be Secretary of State Nominee

The Massachusetts Senator would replace outgoing Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

President Obama plans to nominate U.S. Senator John Kerry for Secretary of State, according to ABC News. 

If nominaed by Obama and confirmed by the Senate, Kerry would replace outgoing Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

Obama has reportedly made his decision but does not plan to announce it within the next few days, partly because of sensitivities surrounding the mass shooting at the

Kerry became the front runner for the top diplomatic post in the wake of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrawing her name from consideration. 

Kerry had reportedly been under consideration for the Secretary of Defense post, but former U.S. Senator Charles Hagel, R-Neb., tops the list of potential nominees for that job, according to Bloomberg News.

While I really respect Senator Kerry, he needs to keep his seat in Congress. This is all just a ploy to try and get Scott Brown back in office. And neither Massachusetts nor the United States would benefit from that possibility.

I do not respect Sen Kerry at all I find his actions after Vietnam to be insulting. He used the Vietnam War as a platform to get his name out and has changed his opinion when it suited him. Very similar to his stand on the Iraq war.

Did you learn this on the internet?

Jake, you have mistaken me for my father. Leave me the hell alone.

I don't think he's mistaken according to your other posts you built the business. Take some responsibility and do the right thing.
Aron Levy December 24, 2012 at 02:34 PM
No, Phil I didn't build the business. My father founded it in 1975. I was born in 1987. The victim has been paid back. My father is in prison. What more do you want?

That's funny you claim on other blogs that you built the business into one of the largest of it's kind in the world. As a computer person I suggest you read some of the reviews from the very people your family made a living off of. They aren't as impressed with you as you are. Humor, try it.
