You don't have to look at Kerry as a defeated Presidential candidate, look at him as a traitor for his actions after his Service during the Vietnam War. His coziness with Hanoi Jane and her ilk, etc. Look at what he tried to do recently to avoid taxes on his big new boat until he was outed by the Press.
The two things the man is good at are marrying money and then spending other people's hard earned dollars. Just because the people of Mass. are too stupid to turn him out of office doesn't mean we should respect him and bow down as he tries to take his act on the road to other countries.
His legislative history is not one of support for this Country. I for one see no good coming from his elevation to this post.
