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.
