    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    but an inarticulate senator with nothing notable accomplished during his terms, weakly regarded at home and abroad, was an awful choice. that is compounded when realizing he opened that senate seat to the GOP. made even worse by recognizing he passed over Colin Powell; someone who would have worked his ass off to overcome the stigma after his false (neocon supplied) report to the UN regarding iraq's military capacity
    Powell might not have wanted to return to such a post. He was in that house before, many folks see no use in returning.

    I didn't like Hillary and don't like Kerry. It's just more of the same. I opposed the Libya adventure, don't approve of the Syrian dilemna, and am tired of the perpetrators of these misadventures. John Kerry is a good guy and likely a good person but howcum we can't get some un-Corporate people into the gov't.

    Meh. I suppose it's the best our lovely two-party system has to offer.

    That is a racist and sexist comment. You should apologize.

    Apparently apart from me every dem liked Kerry every Republican hates him.

    When it comes to politics and religion people really can't think for themselves.

    Though to be honest most people can't think period.

    I guess that leaves only those with a grandiose opinion of themselves and their uniquely keen insights.

    First I'd be much happier with Hillary Clinton staying. Shes popular around the world and an effective diplomat.

    Kerry may not be awful but he's certainly not many people's top pick. Fells like an awfully conservative/safe play when better people can be found.

    Even if the number of well know applicants to the position are lacking. I'd be happier to see a lesser known and capable/smart person with new ideas.
    My thought is that Kerry is being groomed by the Democratic party for another run in 2016.

    wishful thinking
    about like projecting the GOP would consider running those losers, mccain and romney, again in the future


    kerry as secretary of state; anyone see him being able to pull off a resolution between the Palestinians and israeli government? me neither

    but granted, that is one of the most difficult diplomatic problems requiring resolution. so, what other, less entrenched problems of state can we expect kerry to resolve?
