President Barack Obama has chosen Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts to be the next secretary of state, a source has told Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed.
His replacement as head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will be Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the Sneed source said.

What, Menendez's experience with foreign affairs?
Well, Obama did need someone he could count on to lie out his butt, so Kerry is a perfect pick.
Somewhere in hell, Ted Kennedy is smiling.
Save us, Lord, save us!
as if hillary wasn’t bad enuf
I've been thinking about this as well. The thought that has occurred to me is to start/join some conservative business alliance in which the members make a serious commitment to provide mutual support. This community would become a "virtual nation" that is independent of physical location, and with members distributed across the world it would become much easier to migrate to hospitable environments.
I guess conservatives would almost become like the Jews were before the founding of Israel.
This is a travesty. But what isn't a travesty in this administration?
Hey, he speaks French don’t you know. I think he will do OK. A coward in combat perhaps—and a liberal hippie to boot, but, I think he might have the balls to stand up when things get bad. Would rather see Bolton have the Job but then Mitt lost. Hillary picked the guy and its one less Senator for the Democrats!
Thank God he isn’t heading the Defense Department.
Conflict-averse to the end, Barry is going the Senatorial Courtesy route to avoid bruising confirmation battles (Kerry, Chuck Hagel, etc.)
Members of The Club can be expected to rubber-stamp those without putting up a fuss. Heck he’d probably nominate Robert C. Byrd to the Cabinet if he could. (not certain where he is right now, but he doesn’t smell too good, that’s for sure)
Ah, the end run has happened. This is who he wanted from the beginning.
just wondering if.....
the Heinz widow will enjoy her ‘boy toy’ having to travel so much!!! Hillary has lived in a plane and the skies for four years...will John Boy do that also????
but then maybe Hillary enjoyed that she got away from the ‘bent one’ for long, long periods of time...
The Democrats will succeed in replacing Kerry with another leftist Democrat, so it, really, doesn’t matter when the special election happens. RINO Scott Brown will, probably, run for this seat, but Scott Brown will end up losing badly. The Democratic machine of Massachusetts won’t let Scott Brown win, again.
This will give us plenty of opportunities to “Caption This.”
I’ve missed that here at FR with goofy Kerry. I used to LMAO with FReeper responses.
I’ll post a link as soon as I find a confirmation of this information, in the meantime, what few if any people know is that John Kerry was in... Vietnam. I didn’t (and don’t) know.
“....what few if any people know is that John Kerry was in... Vietnam. I didnt (and dont) know.”
No kidding! Did he get any awards?
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you dont, you get stuck in Iraq.~John Kerry-Heinz
That is an outright lie.
