Secretary Of State . . . . John Kerry?

I've already made my feelings clear on the upcoming election: that the good ship Liberty will be overtaken by the marauding Buccaneers of the left. So what better way to destabilize even the most resolute diplomatic pillars? Put Massachusetts senator John kerry at the helm of foreign policy:

Kerry aides insist he's not angling for the job and point to his long involvement in foreign affairs. It started with his famous testimony as a 27-year-old veteranquestioning the Vietnam War before the Senate Foreign RelationsCommittee. It continues today, at age 64, as the No. 3 Democrat on the same panel.

But envisioning him in the post would hardly be a stretch given Obama's chances at securing the Democratic nomination, a general election shaping up as a "change"campaign and Kerry's relationship with the Illinois senator.

This is all purely in a conjectural bubble at this point. But, should Obama take the White House, I'll be writing letters in full support of Kerry's Ascendancy. Since Obama's made it perfectly clear that he's willing to assign diplomatic gravity to unhinged, Napoleonic anti-Semites like Ahmadinejad, one can preemptively see the sheer comedic value in watching Kerry reconcile his expressed desire to push the little man off a cliff with alleged negotiating clout.

Besides, it'll be fun to see Kerry grow a beard and wear a Members Only jacket to Tehran.
