A Toast to a Gorgeous Mind.

Senator John Kerry will make an outstanding Secretary of State and will be an excellent replacement for Secretary of State Clinton, who has through her service enhanced her stature as one of the ablest representatives these country has every had. I like Senator John Kerry. I voted for Senator John Kerry for President of the United States. I thought the whole swift boat thing was a new low in American politics. But having glimpsed Senator Kerry’s confirmation hearings, collegial in many respects, for Secretary of State, I now have a thing for Ambassador Susan Rice. She saw that support for her for Secretary of State from within the party was pretty quiet. Oh, President Obama defended her on the Benghazi thing, but no one really got behind her as a potential Secretary of State candidate. And I thought and wrote about how hypocritical Senators McCain and Graham were on Benghazi vis-à-vis their positions on the Condoleezza Rice-smoking-gun-mushroom-cloud-Iraq thing. But being the intelligent woman she is, Ambassador Rice, could see right through the obvious duplicity to determine who the other candidates were and what was the relationship of the prospective candidates to her attackers. Reminds me of how my grandmother took her children and slipped off from a share-cropping plantation because the usurious, exploitative conditions militated against their survival. When the deck’s stacked, don’t play the game. Here’s to you Ambassador Rice, thanks for the lesson in reasoning. Having seen the unfolding of the Van Jones and Shirley Sherrod situations, your conduct proves that “wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.”
