11. Yes, but it is the same opinion you state like a broken record - many times a year

In fact, your entire post is a swipe at Kerry, who you (implicitly) compare to the wonderful Obamas. I think the Obamas are great, but I don't think Kerry has anything to prove - especially to ignorant posts on blogs or reporters who never had an independent creative thought in their lives.

At this point, he has done important things - even if discretely and quietly. Even with today, I doubt it was coincidence that Kerry was in Afghanistan this weekend. The President would not go there until the agreement was acceptable to both Obama and Karzai. Not to mention, getting OBL likely depended on the Pakistanis cooling down on the Davis issue - and Kerry spent over a week there making that happen.

Though anyone likes praise and recognition, I suspect that Kerry is genuinely motivated by the desire to do good. In his current position, he is well positioned to do that.
