  •  Just say NO to John Kerry!!! (6+ / 0-)

    There are other candidates out there, and I don't want to give back a shot to the GOP at another Senate seat. We should have learned our lesson back in 2009 when Senators Byrd and Kennedy were absent too long from the Senate, when we had the 60 votes and the GOP with their stalling tactics in Minnesota did everything they could to limit the window of the supermajority.

    Whatever Kerry's value as Secretary of State, it will be for naught if we can't get things done in the Senate. We can't even get the freakin' international ADA-style disabilities treaty passed as it is.

    Some people are intolerant, and I CAN'T STAND people like that. -- Tom Lehrer
