Kerry, Hagel, and the Empty Barn Jacket

President Obama has officially nominated John Kerry to be the next Secretary of State.  A happy day for defeated Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who is tap dancing against semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity clips as fast as he can, and who will now get another bite at the senatorial apple after his loss to Elizabeth Warren.

Meanwhile, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) has officially come out against former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) for Secretary of Defense.  Cornyn is both a member of the Armed Services Committee and the GOP whip, so he’d be a major player in a Hagel confirmation.

    Ah, Bill Weld! That would be sweet! I have been hoping for Ed Markey, the first candidate I ever worked for!
