U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice has officially taken her name out of the running for Secretary of State.  She sent a letter to President Obama and asked that she not be considered for the post.

Meanwhile, sources in the GOP have said that they will gladly vote for Massachusetts Senator John Kerry for the post, and would also consider Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense in the second term for Barack Obama in the White House.

What do you think?  Good ideas or bad ideas?
