Rumormongering the Cabinet Appointments?
Boston.com (yes, I know) is reporting that Tom Daschle is up for Health and Human Services.
Obama may not pick Kerry for SoS but Congress (ok, Harry Reid) lines up to give Kerry a consolation prize.
If Clinton accepts SoS, I'm trying to imagine what the nomination hearings might be like. (or can they just skip hearings and take it to a vote? The Senate does have to confirm Cabinet appointments, doesn't it? Or am I mixing it up with something else?).
Rasmussen polls on preferences for SoS: Clinton comes in second with 28% of responses, after Colin Powell with 33%. Pronounced split down gender lines, with women preferring Clinton. Only 4% of respondents would pick Kerry.
update: AP says Daschle has accepted HHS. AP was notoriously inaccurate during the primaries, so grain of salt until official press release from Obama's people.
