    The last time this wasn't effectively true was Sec. Dulles and Ike.

    That's why I didn't want Kerry to take this job.

    And his first big decision is going to be on KXL.

    •  Well I sure don't want another Dulles (0+ / 0-)

      Did you read or hear about Kerry's comments yesterday at the University of Virginia speech? John Kerry speech ominous for Keystone XL pipeline. It was his first major address as SoS.

      While I won't be surprised if Obama tries to use caution in keeping too much drilling in our energy mix, Keystone is a step faster in going over the cliff of irreversible climate destruction.

      Kerry has been pretty solid on environment and he doesn't have any where near as much trouble as most people do with the truth.

      In the middle of the fiscal cliff fiasco, dropping the bomb on Keystone is even more politically expensive than it already was. Waiting to build arguments and spokespeople for the Sunday morning talk fests is essential. Hopefully selling the No is what they are working on.
