If President Obama Needs Senator John Kerry's Service, So Be It.

If my President, Barack Obama, wants and needs Senator John Kerry at his side in his Cabinet, then by God, so be it. Whenever he's been asked to serve, John Kerry salutes and serves with distinction. That's who he is. It's how he's wired. When it comes to American heroes, John Kerry's name will always be among those at the very top of my lists.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts just threw out Scott Brown. Democrats need to have more faith in the great people in that great state (my favorite after my home state of California).

Whether it's Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense, I can not imagine any American more qualified to fill those shoes than that handsome fellow whose great mind is only matched by his great heart and his love of our nation.

Oh, by the way, I really like John Kerry.

5. Who's a Republican?

What are you suggesting? And what is the "LOL" for? Cause it's not funny.

This is getting despicable around here.

7. I think that President Obama will make truly great choices this time.

President Obama is going to transform this country these next four years. Whoever he picks, I will support.

12. I agree - I think Obama is planning for a transformative term and knows Kerry gets that.

He's surrounding himself with the highest level of expertise and courage that comes from a public servant like Kerry.

4. I live in Massachusetts, you don't. I want Kerry to stay in the Senate.

Kerry obviously makes that decision, but there is only one democrat in Massachusetts that can defeat Brown and Brown has a head start on that person. Maybe the President should appoint Diane Feinstein and throw California into a special election, she leads the Senate Intelligence Committee and people in California that want to be rid of her would have a chance to elect a Progressive into her seat.

6. If President Obama wants him, he will serve.

Maybe America needs Senator Kerry, too. Maybe President Obama needs him.

Have more faith in the good people of Massachusetts. You have the best educated electorate in the nation. You cast your electoral votes for another one of my heroes, Senator George McGovern.

Senator Warren didn't just win, the incumbent Scott Brown was rejected.

8. I'm not going to participate in every thread in this

but if you campaigned for Warren in MA like I did, and heard how much people liked Scott Brown who were voting for Elizabeth Warren because they liked her better - all of you pushing this might STOP
