King Kerry

James Traub of FP has a good and thoughtful piece on John Kerry the diplomatic firefighter. As one who voted for Kerry, I always thought he had a rough break in 2004 and years after. I think that if Osama hadn't appeared on tv just days before the election, Kerry would have been king. But part was his indeed his own fault and the inept campaign he ran which he was cast as a man o' bore. Kerry might indeed get the Al Gore effect and become a statesman post-defeat.
