7. May be you should tell your friends they are wrong on all accounts.
Edited on Fri Nov-07-08 06:02 PM by Mass
Kerry's endorsement was not ignored by the media neither was his speech at the Convention. Actually, it got quite a review in the news. It was a BIG deal as it was the first big name to come. They just forgot because he did it early. I am sure that it was also a BIG deal in the black media, and a simple google would tell you. Indeed, no endorsement news lasts more than a few days, because they are replaced by the next one.

Kerry will be an influential Senator if he does not go to the cabinet, getting the chair of the SFRC, which may be more influential than a cabinet position as it supervises the SoS.

You probably will not convince your friends. Just tell them it is Obama's responsibility to choose the cabinet and that their opinion or yours do not matter.

BTW, what is the relationship between what Biden accomplished during the two years he was chair of the SFRC (under Bush's rule) and Kerry being SoS? I am not following.
