Is John Kerry Really Frontrunner for Secretary of State?


That’s what the Boston Herald is reporting today.

That makes no sense to me at all.  Sure, he’s guaranteed to be replaced by a Democrat, but when has Sen. Kerry shown any leadership on any international issue?  Has anyone ever thought “Gee, I think we could really solve this problem in [insert name]-istan if only John Kerry would get involved?”

On foreign-policy issues, Sen. Kerry’s record of getting nearly everything wrong is almost as bad as Joe Biden’s.  Are Americans really clamoring for the Kerry foreign policy?

As a resident of Massachusetts, I’d be more than happy to see him go, but I don’t get the upside for an Obama administration at all.
