(CNN) — President Obama has decided to nominate Sen. John Kerry (skull and bones member) to be the next secretary of state and could make a formal announcement as early as next week, a Democrat who spoke to Kerry told CNN Saturday.

The expected nomination follows U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s decision to withdraw her name from consideration for the post. She dropped out of the running Thursday after weeks of criticism from Republicans about statements she made about the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

If confirmed by the Senate, Kerry would replace current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who plans to leave her post within the administration.

Kerry, the senior senator from Massachusetts and the Democratic Party’s 2004 presidential nominee, is noted for the experience, gravitas and relationship-building skills that could help him succeed as the United States’ top diplomat.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, recently jokingly referred to Kerry as “Mr. Secretary.”
