Who Will Run for Kerry's Seat if He's Appointed Secretary of Defense?

Would it be Scott Brown? Congressmen Markey or Capuano? Tell us who you think should run.

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 be 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 to finish out Kerry's term, which expires in 2014.

Conversation from the breakfast table this morning to the morning commute has everyone talking - who will run for Kerry's U.S. Senate seat if he's appointed? Could it be Scott Brown? Or maybe Congressmen Ed Markey or Michael Capuano?

Only time will tell, but we know you're talking about it. So tell us, who do you think will run for Kerry's seat if he's appointed? Let us know in the comments section below.

The results of 2012 proved that those who work for a living are now out-voted by those who vote for a living.

LOL. That's a good one.

Jerry/Emcee, that's your opinion. I presume you are still in the land of the recent election which Romney lost for many reasons, but most immediately for the 47% comments. And the language of 'takers' and 'makers' which I found highly insulting to the middle class. The 47% nonsense was debunked royally. Why are you even starting again with this stuff which proved fatal to Romney/Ryan's campaign. Say did you See Doonesbury comic Sunday? "When Dems retire, like Carter, Clinton, and Gore, they remain engaged as global citizens" says the bearded Rev. Scot. "But when Republicans exit, like Ford, Reagan, Bush and Dubya, they're all about corporate speeches and golf!" There you have it, folks, the difference between the parties.

Al Gorezeera has been making money hand over fist from oil and fake global warming. I'm sure you've seen him fly his private jet all over the place. Another reminder George W. Bush saved around 10 million lives with his work against AIDs in Africa, please do the research Gretchen. I'm leaving soon to go skiing. Bush became the co-founder of the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, a charity focused on ‘building back better’ after the devastation of the 2010 Haitian earthquake. Bush also helps charities closer to home. He was the chairman of Hearts and Hammers; a Dallas based charity, designed to rehabilitate the houses of Dallas’ elderly residents that enabled them to live independently. Bush never critized Obama because it would have been classless. Some people don't need the limelight. Please send that memo to Clinton?

Republican or Democrat, does it make any difference who runs? Honest people no longer choose to run because of the humiliation that media presents in covering those they don't want in office. Honest candidates would never place their families through the BS that is thrown out there. Therefore, we're all stuck with what is remaining...the dishonest, out to see what they can get for themselves. By the way, today the president got a kick in the old ...... when the Appeals Court said he violated the CONSTITUTION. It was a Unanimous decision!!! Sometimes, even the person who thinks he can do as he pleases, is wrong. So, he now joins my ranks, those who are not perfect (by the way, I don't have enough fingers & toes to count the number of times I've been wrong. I admit my mistakes, he'll just blame some one else other than him. That's his track record.).
