John Kerry Tapped To Be Next Secretary Of State

John_F_KerryAccording to ABC News, President Barack Obama will name Massachusetts Senator John Kerry to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, thus ensuring four years of discourse regarding his ponytails and colorful pantsuits.

Hills was recovering from an illness and a concussion she suffered after fainting as a result of her illness over the weekend.

Though she will step down from her position as Secretary of State in a few weeks, Clinton leaves a legacy that includes advocacy for international and domestic LGBT rights.

Kerry also has a strong record on LGBT issues, having voted against the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 and supporting the Employee Non-Discrimination Act.

Still, Hillary Clinton’s are some big — albeit sensible — shoes to fill.
