JKR said so in the FAQ section of her site.

So who does that leave as a possibility? Percy? Lupin? I like the idea of Kingsley, too.

What if it was Molly? Thinking a bit too far outside the box now, but it would be neat.

Quite far outside the box.  I don't think Molly would make a good MoM.  She's too ... unreasonable.  I hate to say it, but there it is.  I don't know Kingsley well enough, yet, to know.  I'd love to see Lupin as MoM.  I think he'd be good.

Um, yeah.  No other thoughts.

No way it will be Lupin with all the stigma against werewolves.  He can't even teach at Hogwarts without people freaking out.  *sigh*

You know, JKR might, just MIGHT introduce a new character.  ;)  Of course, with all the characters she already has making cameos or taking important roles you need a place like the HP Lexicon just to keep track of them all.  But they're all so fun!  Quirky and interesting and delightful.  And some really irritating, but you've got to have them.

Personally?  I think if it's not Kingsley it's going to be someone new.  Or someone mentioned in passing that we're completely unfamiliar with.

....  So when is HBP coming out??

I agree with Cho ... Molly wouldn't make a good MoM. A good mom, yeah, sure, but not MoM. (Okay, bad pun, moving on... :P)

Lupin getting the job would be really cool, but unlikely ... I think it's gonna be someone we haven't heard of yet.

I agree with Mad that it may be a new character.  Each book has a new character that adds a new twist or explains a subplot.  It would make the fight against YKW too easy if the new MoM is someone we know and trust.  There will still have to be conflict within the MoM as to how to proceed - there should still be unrevealed Death Eaters lurking around there.  I think the book would be more interesting if there is suspicion or distrust surrounding the new MoM.  Also, there could be a power struggle for the MoM position leading to a rift among the Order as well. Conflict tends to be a more interesting plot device than giving the public exactly what they want.  JKR's books are too clever to serve up exactly what we want when there is still a new book to go.  Is there any chance that the HBP could be the new MOM?

Took the words right out of my ... fingers. :)

Ooooo, what if the HBP was the new MoM who took authoriatian-like control, so people just called him a prince, like a nick-name, but really he was like the old ministry that locked people away without fair trials and such, like Crouch?

I can't even think straight. Must be the not-bronchitis.
