Sources tell ABC News that President Barack Obama has decided that he will nominate U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to be the next secretary of state. For a variety of reasons including the finalization of the process, other pending Cabinet decisions, and - more immediately - the nation's reaction to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the formal announcement will be put off for a few days. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is recovering from an illness and a concussion she suffered upon fainting because of that illness, is set to retire in the next few weeks.
