You do remember certenly that in 2004 as he ran for President, Kerry would have allowed himself to speak any word in Molières languages, for not having to support any backclash from Faux Noise-RWutjob network?
 Well, one of the good point that he has no no more presidential ambition, is that he can let loose his foreign languages abilities....
Well, I'd like to post, for quite fun, a collection of him speaking in an another language than English.
His first foreign language is French, but he does also know German, Italian, and some Norvegian too...
Plus don't know when or where did I read it, but he likely leaned some Vietnamese while in combat.
America as well as every contries needs more leaders who are polyglott. It shows a certain open minded personality, and it surely helps in buiding more peacful political relationships, IMHO.

So don't hesitate to comment!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
