    Senate Foreign Affairs Committee chairman. Ugh.

    •  I think this is what will keep Kerry in Senate... (2+ / 0-)

      I've been thinking about this and I think we could see a 2 yr "place holder" Sec of State and then come 2014 Kerry will not run for re-election - but by that time I suspect Brown will have declared to run for Gov - opening up his seat for a full election rather than a special now.  Kerry will be named Sec of State for the final two years of the Obama Admin to cap his career.  

      Menendez problem would still be there, but at the same time GOP could take the Senate anyways.  

      As for who would be Sec State replacing Clinton - Tom Donilon.  First two years of re-election will be domestic heavy, and then come the midterms with the usual losses, it becomes FP heavy the second half.  So Dems will focus on tax reform and immigration as the big ticket domestic issues the next two years and then Kerry is moved into State in time for the FP push.
