    This does harm. I've got no problem with Kerry as SOS, in a vacuum where it doesn't hurt the party in the Senate. In the real world, I've got a big problem with it. Will Kerry be that much better at SoS than whomever the next name on the list would have been to really make it worth putting that seat at risk and giving the media an early chance to play "referendum on Obama" ahead of the VA and NJ 2013 "referendums on Obama?"

    Dumb. Just dumb.
