    fuss about susan rice is much simpler than what you propose, tho.  

    the r's would like to see john kerry as sos, which would open up his seat & they want scott brown to run to fill it.  they think brown would win it b/c the d's bench in mass isn't very deep talent-wise, & if he did win, that would decrease the d's majority in the senate, & increase the r's.

    •  Possibly so...but Rice's "nomination" as SoS is... (1+ / 0-)

      ...a side-show that Rs are using to weaken POTUS Obama's strong job approval rating with public...in hopes to force him to gravel at their feet and meet their budget demands.

        Rice or  Kerry were who Obama was REALLY considering for the job?.... He's just letting Repubs flounder and make themselves look stupid...as in: "Please, continue Congressmen."

        •  fireshadow, yes it would. and i hope that's what (0+ / 0-)

          the prez ultimately does :)

          if he has to raid the senate, tho, i hope it's in a blue state with a democratic gov who can appoint a democratic replacement, so we're not faced with the same problem that exists in mass.

        •  I think Rice is (was) his choice for SoS... (0+ / 0-)

          ...but sure he had more then one very good candidates...as some on this site have suggested...Al Gore, John Kerry, and Big Dog, sorry couldn't resist but Bill Clinton...imho for these times he is by far the best candidate for SoS.  Has instant credibility on global basis and would put repubs on defensive during hearings.  They might choose not to hold hearings so as to avoid the humiliation.  This move would also leave John Kerry in Senate or not if he's really ready to move on to cabinet or whatever else he wants.

        get to humiliate him, they're going to exploit.  they love to see him beg & grovel as much as possible -- tho graveling at their feet sounds exactly like what they'd do, too :)
