Susan Rice Out. John Kerry In?

Pres. Obama's candidate for Secretary of State has withdrawn her bid to be top diplomat. Does that mean Mass. Sen. John Kerry is next up for consideration?

President Obama said today that U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice had withdrawn from consideration to be the next Secretary of State, saying conservative opposition would make her candidacy too "disruptive."

With Rice out of the picture, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is seen by many to be the frontrunner to replace current top diplomat Hillary Clinton.

On Huffington Post and elsewhere, there has been speculation that the reason for such fierce opposition to Rice was to get Kerry into the Obama Administration and get back the U.S. Senate seat recently lost by Republican Sen. Scott Brown to his successful Democratic rival, Elizabeth Warren.

We asked last month about who you think should run for the Senate seat, if, in fact, Kerry is offered the Secretary of State position and takes it. What do you think now?

Quasimodo wake up, John Kerry lied. He wrote himself up for and was awarded a Silver Star for shooting a fleeing wounded VC teenager in the back. He wrote himself up for a was awarded 3 Purple Hearts for fictitious wounds. The truth Quasimodo will not be found in the neighborhoods that you frequent.

You are correct Dave Gray, If you were not sweating and bleeding during the second French Indochina War, you do not have the right to an opinion.

I beg to differ. My APO in 1967-68 was 96227, and that qualifies me to say he has a right to his opinion. How about you? What's your qualification?

96227 was the APO for Bien Hoa, fat duty for REMFS. My qualifications are 5 year participant in combat in French Indochina, I have vivid memories of Senator Kerry's statements circa 1971-1972 in which I had the pleasure to send many VCs, NVAs, Pathet Lao, Khmer Communist and some Ruskies, Checks, Chinks to the Big Happy Hunting Ground. My main function was patrolling the Ho Chi Minh trail from the Fishes mouth, Tchepone, Catcher's Mitt down to Rom Long, Parrot;s Beak, An Loc and Loc Ninh with some excursions to Khe Sanh and Quantri.
