We could have predicted this:
Sen. John Kerry, the former presidential candidate who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is Barack Obama’s choice to be the next secretary of state, the president announced Friday.
The senior senator from Massachusetts is noted for having the experience, gravitas and relationship-building skills that could help him succeed Hillary Clinton, the outgoing top U.S. diplomat.
Obama, making the announcement as Kerry and his wife looked on, praised the senator’s “extraordinarily distinguished Senate career” and military service “with valor” in the Vietnam War.
Just what we need!
And remember the medals!
I must say, overall I’m glad Mitt Romney lost…still even my poor feelings on Romney, he could have easily done better than this. I’d actually bet it would be Allen West.
