Reports: Obama Will Choose Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry as Secretary of State Nominee

The Massachusetts senator reportedly will be the pick to replace Hillary Clinton as the country's top diplomat.

John Kerry will be President Obama's pick to become the next Secretary of State, and replace Hillary Clinton as the nation's top diplomat.

The New York Times reports that the Massachusetts senator and former Democratic presidential nominee will be the selection for the post. 

Many expected Kerry to be the president's pick after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice took her name out of the running last week. Rice had been under scrutiny by Republicans in Congress for statements she made in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
