Ex-presidential nominee, John Kerry has been voted to take office as the new Secretary of State by a whole 95% of the Senate! That's 94-3 for the 28 year Senate veteran.
Seems like ex-presidential nominees are a pretty popular choice for secretary of state!
According to ABCnews, "Voting against Kerry’s nomination were Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Texas Republican Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz."
