There were a number of reasons to be considered and her experience in the Obama presidency and with the Japan ambassadorial position give her an edge over the other candidates. The same was reported by a political news site of the US–Axios.
Despite such a strong call on her gearing up for the role, the White House declined to comment on the news. To confirm the news further, the US embassy in Australia has been contacted and they have promised to give a public statement soon.

In 2018, Arthur B Culvahuse was selected to fill the position but he left as soon as Trump left the office in January. Among the many supporters that Biden had during his active campaign against Trump, Kennedy was among the firsts to come forwards from an influential high profile politica; background.
