Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

I’m only surprised that he didn’t put John F’n in the job before now. He did serve in VietNam, you know.

Three words, “The Peter Priciple!”

Rice is so stupid, I think she might be suffering some form of retardation.

I believe we all understand what Kerry’s problems are!

This should work out well./s

In all seriousness, conservatives should conduct themselves as if there is no government. Buy weapons and ammo and get ready to defend this Country alongside our brave troops. These asshats are going to bring us an invasion.

Trying to understand this. Hillary publicly humiliates herself by trying to take blame for Benghazi and Bill runs all over the country trying to defend this President during the campaign...now Hillary is out. What exactly is in this for the Clintons? 2016? Come on...Bill looks like he’s on death door and she looks like she’s drinking a fifth a day minimum, not even wearing make up or doing her hair anymore with bags under her eyes down to her knees...
