Obama may tap John Kerry as Defense Secretary

in Uncategorized by

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John Kerry to serve as his next defense secretary, theWashington Post reports.

“Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.”

Meanwhile, counterterrorism adviser John Brennan is a leading contender for the CIA job vacated by David Petraeus if he wants it.
