What the hell is up with all the "Kerry to the Cabinet" Posts?

Seriously. We aren't trying for "Senator Brown: the remix". My God, I bet his offices aren't even cleaned out yet.

Is this some kind of ruse?

1. What don't you understand about the posts? Apparently the...

President, based on White House sources, is seriously considering offering Senator Kerry the position.

2. There is a rumor that President Obama is considering Kerry as Secretary of Defense.

I really wish the President and the people advising him would consider the democratic voters in Massachusetts, of which I am one. Taking Kerry out of the Senate will throw us into the fourth expensive, tough election in 2 years (Kennedy replacement, 2010 Gubernatorial, 2012 Senate). I am at the breaking point. All three previous elections were expensive and divisive, I am under no allusion that a Kerry replacement election will be different. Leave us alone, we have been through enough, let us get back to regular elections.

3. That's why I think this is specious...

Because I am sure the president knows this. I am sure his people know this.

There seem to be so many other people qualified. All I am saying is this seems hinky.

4. I agree, bad idea.

I really hope the President looks elsewhere for Cabinet members. Taking Kerry out of the Senate, risking losing a safe seat, doesn't make sense to me. It does seem to be the rumour, and not just here, but I hope it's wrong.

5. Scott Brown?

He's toast.

A Democrat would win Kerry's seat. Period.

and quite frankly it shocks me in the least.

7. No. Someone told someone at The Washington Post. They are rumors / ballons being 'floated'.


Nothing has been confirmed, not even who the source is.
