  •  It's why Republicans love him at State (0+ / 0-)

    All of Kerry's "liberal" positions are domestic -- environment, labor, etc. He's been a warmonger for years, up to and including Afghanistan and Iraq. Republicans know that putting him at State means they basically get McCain's foreign policy, and Kerry becomes irrelevant to domestic issues (with the possible exception of climate change, but we'll see how passionate he really is about that now that he has a whole world to travel around).

    No wonder he got near-unanimous Republican support. As long as Kerry is alive, shunting him over to State is perfect for them.
