John Kerry Meets With Syrian President
Kerry is looking more Presidential than Bush is. I can understand why Kerry would be interested in strengthening relationships with Syria while Bush is in office. I just wonder if there is more to it.

"I think we found a great deal of areas of mutual interest, some common concerns and some possibilities for initiatives that could be taken in the future to strengthening the relationship between the U.S. and Syria," Kerry told reporters after meeting with al-Sharaa.

2. OMG! How this rips at my heart and brain
while grabbing for the tissue box again. Damn that *!

at the bottom of article:

After Kerry left the Foreign Ministry on Saturday, 13-year-old Mustafa al-Nabulsi approached him with a drawing of the senator as a soldier in his Vietnam days.

"You have made me much more important than I was, though. You made me a general," Kerry said.

"I wish you were the president," al-Nabulsi said.

"Thank you very much. So do I," Kerry said.

3. Thanks for catching that.
His last three words are the most meaningful to me. "So do I."
