Kerry, who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee  is seen a possible successor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in President Obama’s second term..  Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick says at this point it is just wild speculation.

As for what if any role Patrick might have in a second Obama term, he said he’ll do anything his  friend the president asks, so long as it does not force him to give up his job. Patrick has vowed to serve out his term as Governor, which  has two more years.
