So instead of picking the person who lied to America all over the place, he picks a person who tried to illegally negotiate a surrender to Vietnam. Awesome...In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

This is a chance to drag the antiwar left through the ringer and highlight their hypocritical BS. It's John McCain's chance to rub Kerry's nose in his record. The senate Republicans should bork him with a vengeance.

However, either way, it's not likely to prevent his appointment, and I'm not too sure that it makes a difference, since any nominee is going to reflect Obama's agenda and execute his policies. We may not get anyone decent in the job, but we can make sure that the face of the Obama State Department is a high-profile leftist who is going to be synonymous with Obama's failures in that realm. And, remember that while the press loves Hillary and wants to keep her viable for 2016, they see Kerry as a loser and they will not work as hard to protect him. This could be fun.

There is no way that ANY Republican will say Ya to his nomination. The traitor. He should have been shot a long time ago. He hates this country as much as Obama does, so they will fit well together.

They don't need any Republicans to vote for confirmation, and Kerry will sail through. Can't be stopped, I don't think. They've got us 51 + 2 to 47.
May as well bend over....
