The Washington Post is reporting that President Obama is considering appointing Massachusetts U.S. Sen. John Kerry as the Secretary of Defense. There was speculation Kerry would become the next Secretary of State.
Either way Kerry's move to possibly become a member of Obama's cabinet will open up his current seat. Should he be appointed, a special election would be held in Massachusetts to finish out Kerry's term, which expires in 2014.
Who else would you like to see in the President's second-term cabinet? How could he best bridge the gap (or canyon) between Democrats and Republicans? Tell us in the comments.
