37. You don't nominate someone before the current SoS has announced their resignation

We don't even know WHEN Hillary Clinton is going to step down.

I don't know where you get your facts, but the president, who is the one who makes these choices, indicated through the WH that Susan Rice was among his choices for SoS and Kerry for Defense. Do you forget that? Everyone thought that distribution was a clear signal that his choice for SoS would be Rice, and not Kerry.

At this point, I personally think Kerry's chances are worse than they were beforehand. And btw, he only defended Rice back in September against the Benghazi charges that were first being lodged then (well before there was any talk of any nominations; it was election season). But he hasn't said boo since then, nor defended her as a potential candidate for Secy of State against the more general Congressional and media attacks. Oh, except after she removed herself from consideration today. Then he was all hearts and flowers. And then there was that little game he played with John McCain.
