Oh, am I anticipating? My bad.
The United States Senate voted today to confirm Sen. John Kerry as the next secretary of state.
Just five days ago, Kerry, a democratic senator from Massachusetts, testified before the committee he chaired. As NPR’s Michele Kelemen reported at the time, the hearing was a love fest.
94-3; Twitter says that Cornyn, Cruz, & Inhofe all voted no. Gonna be a humdinger of a campaign, there; the Democrats are right now kind of hoping that Brown maybe wants to run for Governor, instead, largely because Brown’s polling numbers are wicked good, to quote the regional patois of my extended family. Guess we’ll see, huh?
PS: Yeah, Kerry’s a putz. On the bright side, I still have strong hopes that his wife will start a diplomatic incident with somebody I don’t like anyway.
