Kerry Says He Was Offered Job Before Rice Dropped Out

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) told the Boston Globe that President Obama offered him the job of secretary of state a week before United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration.

Said Kerry: "He called me, actually a week before Susan got out of the thing. He called me and said, 'You're my choice. I want you to do this.' He asked me to keep it quiet. I did. I sat on it."
