1. ADMINISTRATION:

Kerry likely to face great green expectations at State Dept.

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) can expect little opposition today when his Senate colleagues vote on his confirmation to be the United States' top diplomat. But from the time he enters 2201 C St. NW as secretary of State, the career-long proponent of action on climate change will face very high expectations from environmentalists and others who hope his ascension will make a significant difference on issues they care about, ranging from the international climate talks to the Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
