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

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 …

His is a familiar strategy, says O'Brien, who now owns a consulting business in Boston: Those punch lines she refers to are the supposed "zingers" Romney is reported to have rehearsed over the past month.
