John Kerry acting as key Obama surrogate, fuelling secretary of state buzz
By: Lee-Anne Goodman, The Canadian Press
WASHINGTON - John Kerry, the Democratic senator whose patrician ways helped seal his defeat to George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election, is emerging one of Barack Obama's top lieutenants in the U.S. president's battle for re-election.
Kerry's foreign policy gravitas makes him a natural to tout Obama's achievements on everything from ordering the successful hit on 9-11 mastermind Osama bin Laden a year ago to working to topple Libya's Moammar Gadhafi.
The long-serving Massachusetts lawmaker has been the chairman of the powerful Senate foreign relations committee for two years, replacing Joe Biden when he became Obama's vice-president.
But the buzz is building in his home state and beyond that there could be another reason for Kerry's starring role in Obama's re-election bid he's a top candidate for secretary of state in a second Obama term if Hillary Clinton indeed makes good on her stated intention to vacate the post.

That should sink the polls further... LOL @ Scarey~Deadwards......
We here in Taxachusetts would gladly get rid of this ultimate Ma$$hole, but not at the expense of our nation suffering through Our Dear Leader’s second term.
Having a Viet Nam war protestor as Sec. of State would be another sign of the collapse of American values in this evil age.
did you guys know that John Kerry served in Vietnam?
Would he get a Purple Heart for serving as Secretary of State?
Oh, crap. Another treasonous, chicken in the administration.
Attention all Massachusetts freepers:
How stupid are the people in your state? I mean really... WTF-ingF?
John Freakin’ Kerry? “Mitt” Romney?? Romneycare???
I thought I had heard something about that, but wasn't sure. Also, this was the guy who picked John Edwards as his running mate.
Asking as a New Yorker, right?
For those who are still not on the ABO train, just imagine John F. Kerry, Secretary of State.
Oh...! i am not saying NY’ers are any better, trust me on that
Will this pass “The Global Test”?
He has the hat; asshat, that is.
"Under questioning from the Committee, Kerry referred to the democratically elected government of South Vietnam -- our allies -- as a "dictatorial regime, the Thieu-Ky-Khiem regime," while respectfully calling the North Vietnamese communist regime we were fighting by its oxymoronic official name, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and the murderous Viet Cong's political arm by their preferred "Provisional Revolutionary Government.":
June, 1970 -- Kerry joins Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), a national veterans group that is part of the Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice. The PCPJ is a broad coalition of local and national organizations, including the Communist Party, USA, "committed to conducting demonstrations aimed at ending the war in Indochina, and poverty, racism and injustice at home." The VVAW, CCI and PCPJ all have headquarters at 156 Fifth Avenue in New York City. VVAW Executive Secretary Al Hubbard, a former Black Panther, is also on the coordinating committee of the PCPJ. Hubbard soon appoints Kerry to the VVAW's Executive Committee, bypassing the normal election process.
Fact: The Black Panthers were revolutionary communists...
From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s/original] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [i.e., the police].
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:
"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
John Kerry and the VVAW--Hanoi's American Puppets?
"Two recently discovered documents captured from the Vietnamese communists during the Vietnam War strongly support the contention that a close link existed between the Hanoi regime and the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) while John Kerry served as the group's leading national spokesman."
Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) Complete FBI files:
JOHN KERRY BEING HONORED, BY COMMUNISTS, FOR HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THEIR VICTORY OVER UNITED STATES
Source for both:
"The John Kerry quote comes in the epilogue to "The New Soldier," the book put out by Vietnam Veterans Against the War [VVAW]. The book's cover features a group of not-particularly sober-looking anti-war protesters (vets, presumably) flying the American flag upside down [while mocking the historic flag raising event at Iwo Jima]":
Note John Kerry's name at top right of The New Soldier
"We will not quickly join those who march on Veterans' Day waving small (American) flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the 'greater glory of the United States.' "
So John Kerry would have a difficult time marching with those waving small American flags yet had NO problems marching with those waving HUGE VIETCONG FLAGS?
