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 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 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.

Bill never lied about anything important. He balanced the budget and gave us the first surplus in 30 years, just so Bush could squander it in Iraq

The whole reason John McCain is acting like someone unhinged is simply so Obama will name Kerry opening up his Senate Seat for Scott Brown again. It's this game they like to play and Susan Rice is the pawn. To think they are so upset over Rice's "talking points" on national TV in the midst of an investigation but they are not a bit concerned over Rep Issa posting "sensitive" material on his website including the names of those who are helping us is ludercious.
