John Kerry As New U.S. Secretary Of State

Massachusetts Senator and former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry will likely be the new U.S. Secretary of State now that Hillary Clinton resigns. I guess this means that in the coming 4 years, the U.S. will vote for various things in the U.N. before they vote against them... The appointment is somewhat risky for Obama from a political perspective though, since this means that there will be a new election for the seat as Senator for Massachusetts, where Republican Scott Brown, who recently lost against Elizabeth Warren in the race for the other Massachusetts Senate seat, could win if the Democrats nominate a weak candidate.
