A whole foreign policy article - just for a Kerry's butler story?
I love it!
I start reading the Times' magnum opus on Kerry foreign policy in the Magazine today - of which more later - and come across a vignette that will have caused apoplexy amongst DEWDROPs across the nation.
The scribe, Matt Bai , met the great man in a Santa Monica hotel (italics in original):
A row of Evian water bottles had been thoughtfully placed on a nearby table. Kerry frowned.
I suspect - nothing on his site yet - that Bob Somerby, amongst many others, is fit to be tied.
(I'm rather more interested in Kerry's refusal to close down expectations of any kind of US forward policy involving military force. Like - say - by stating his definition of pre-emption along Caroline lines. And denying any US role in bringing democracy to any part of the world except by dint of example.
I'm still reading...)
