Second Term Cabinet Intrigue Continues

Although U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice remains the front-runner to be President Obama’s next secretary of state (even with all the controversy surrounding Rice’s initial statements about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi), Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is still in contention for the post. And if Rice gets that coveted job, it’s assumed that Kerry might become the next defense secretary. But Kerry getting either position presents one potential downside for Democrats: his exit from the Senate would trigger a special election in Massachusetts, with recently defeated Republican Scott Brown waiting in the wings to possibly mount a comeback.
