Cabinet candidates seeing some changes in the running

Posted: Updated:

Democratic Senator John Kerry is now at the top of the President's list of Secretary of State candidates.

The announcement comes after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew from consideration to avoid a fight with Republicans.

Massachusetts' Senator Kerry unsuccessfully ran for President in 2004 and is pining to be America's top diplomat.

With quick changes comes the news that Chuck Hagel, a former Republican Senator from Nebraska, is emerging as a front runner to serve as Defense of Secretary.

If Kerry and Hagel are selected it would put two decorated Vietnam War Veterans at the State and the Pentagon.
