John Kerry: From Senator Elizabeth Warren



Dear ______________

I was looking forward to spending many years as understudy to my friend and senior senator, John Kerry.

That time has been cut to about three weeks.

But as much as I'm going to miss him in the United States Senate, I know I speak for so many of us from Massachusetts when I say how proud we are to be sending him off as our Secretary of State.

John Kerry is having a thank you event for our constituents on Thursday night in Boston. I'll likely still be here in Washington casting votes, but in my place, I'd like to send him well wishes from thousands of people across Massachusetts and around the country.

For more than two decades, John has been fighting for hard-working families. He has fought tirelessly for the expansion of children's health care, greater support of small businesses, and protecting our environment.

And he's shown just as much commitment to helping families around the world. During his time on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he's made more than 90 overseas trips, working for free elections in the Philippines, AIDS relief in Africa, and assisting with diplomatic interventions in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Sudan.

John Kerry is a true statesman, and he will be an extraordinary Secretary of State. I'm deeply grateful for his support, his encouragement, and most of all, his leadership. His work every day for all the people of Massachusetts and our country has been truly remarkable.

Please join me in thanking John Kerry for his wonderful work in the United States Senate, and wish him well as Secretary of State.

Thank you for being a part of this,

Elizabeth

7. Exactly! After the gop blocked her from the CFPB.. she is now the

senior Senator from Mass. Funny how things turn out sometimes when you work hard and have the facts on your side.

17. Day they blocked her I said the GOP was going to live to regret that. Regret it

because she was going to bigger and better places. Now she can really stick it to them. Much more than if she was CFPB.

3. I Love You John Kerry

I have watched you from afar for so many years, Mr. Kerry. I am over the moon that you have been approved as Secretary of State. No one on this Earth deserves it more than you, Sir. Congratulations and all my best to you and your beautiful wife.

12. Nice tribute...

from Senator Warren to Secretary of State Kerry.

Hopefully soon we will be sending you Interim Senator Frank and after the special election, Senator Markey.

(Yes, maybe I'm overly optimistic but I'm still over-the-moon happy about Elizabeth.)
