Obama wants John Kerry for Sec. of Defense, Rice for Sec of State

Elections have consequences.  If you want to get an idea of how Obama will govern in his second term, look at who he is considering for Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State.  This drop to the Washington Post may be just a trial balloon to see how Kerry and Rice will fly.  A lead balloon comes to mind.

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus.

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