    Who will be Secretary of State in President Obama's scond term?

    I know, I know, the election is not over yet, but I am an optimist and a believer. So, assuming that he is re-elected  who will he name to this extremely important office? I have seen Sen. John Kerry mentioned and feel he is qualified. UN Ambassador Susan Rice is mentioned too.
    But who else? How about another shot for Colin Powell? He would never be fooled again (Iraq WMDs). Maybe a Republican. someone who would not run for Pres in 2016, though. What do you think?

    What I think is I hope this is some sort of sick joke. Kerry????? Ambassador Rice? The one who just lied her butt off to the American people? To cover for the WH screw up? Or for Hillary's screw up, sorry, I forgot they threw her under the bus for the attack. Seriously? Wow.

      And your suggestion would be? Kerry is widely respected in Congress as having much expertise in foreign relations. You can read about it elsewhere, not my words.

    I would like to see Huntsman get it actually, one of the few reasonable Republicans around and he has lots of experience with foreign affairs particularly with China which will be important. I think he would be a good non partisan choice.

    It's a shame that some (as demonstrated in this question's answers) are incapable of having a logical discussion without being insulting and partisan.

      I like him too. I would hate to set him up as a shoo-in for Pres though, being a lifelong Demo.

      I doubt he will run for president again, certainly not so soon anyway he doesn't appeal the the righty nuts enough as shown by this years primary.

      My scorn for the suggestion of Rice has nothing to with partisan and everything to do with outright trying to deceive the entire Nation to cover up for whoever it was that messed up. How anyone would want a Secretary of State who has already demonstr

      Uhuh Sassy sure. Why don't you try acting like an adult for once? Someone asked a question and you used the opportunity to be offensive.

      Josak, are you denying Rice outright lied to the world with a straight face? Is that what you are claiming? I'm sorry I forgot that the left finds truth offensive.

    John Kerry is the one most often mentioned. Huntsman would be good, too.
