Kerry would serve US well in Cabinet

In nominating Sen. John F. Kerry for secretary of state, President Barack Obama observed that “in a sense, John’s entire life has prepared him for this role.” Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran, has been an activist in foreign affairs since his arrival in the Senate in 1985. A consistent advocate of U.S. leadership, he has forged personal ties with top politicians in scores of countries. Even his failed 2004 presidential campaign left him with experience managing a large organization and its daily challenges.
