John Kerry finds his calling (Hurl chunks!)

Ten years ago this week, John Kerry barely held off John Edwards in Wisconsin’s Democratic primary, prolonging for another few weeks his plodding, uninspiring march to the party’s presidential nomination. Kerry went on to lose an eminently winnable election, after which most Democrats in Washington expected him to disappear, like Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis.

Kerry went the Ed Muskie route, instead. He persevered, and now, exactly a year into his tenure as secretary of state, he is enjoying the most widespread admiration of his long political life. In September, even before he managed to restart peace negotiations in the Middle East, a Gallup poll put his approval rating at 60 percent, 15 points ahead of President Barack Obama’s. As the journalist David Rohde wrote in an excellent Atlantic piece titled, “How John Kerry Could End Up Outdoing Hillary Clinton”: “It’s looking more and more possible that when the history of early 21st century diplomacy gets written, it will be Kerry who is credited with making the State Department relevant again.”

So why do we like Kerry so much more now?

Sorry, John the Traitor Kerry is to hurtful to those that defend this country and too much of an actual fool to be considered for an “April Fool”

Who are these people who like Kerry so much now? Except maybe the people of his home state now that he is not their Senator, but it never seemed to bother them that he was their senator, and their new senator doesn’t appear to be any good (neither of their replacement senators seems to do anything useful).

John Kerry finds his calling

Yes, docking your yacht in Rhode Island so as to avoid paying taxes in your state of MA is quite the calling.
