Senate to begin to look at Obama nominees

Up next, Cabinet appointments.

President Obama signed documents Monday at the Capitol -- just after he was sworn into office for a second term -- to formally nominate four key administration officials that he had previously announced: Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense, John Kerry for Secretary of State, Jacob Lew for Secretary of Treasury and John Brennan for director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The confirmation hearings begin this week Kerry at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week. Hagel's hearing is next week.

Obama still needs to name replacements for Commerce, Interior and Labor seretaries.
