Prior to announcing his nomination of Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, for secretary of state (as a payback for launching his presidential career as the keynote speaker during Mr. Kerry’s 2004 presidential bid, no doubt), President Obama put further wear on his shoulder rotator cuff patting himself on the back for his foreign policy and national security accomplishments (“Obama nominates Kerry for secretary of state,” Web, Friday).

However, current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s foreign policy and national security failures notwithstanding, Mr. Kerry is the worst possible choice to assume this vital post. Indeed, Mr. Kerry’s Senate position as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and his relentless campaign for secretary of state are merely a veiled attempt to mask his anti-Vietnam War betrayal of the military and his anti-Iraq War and anti-American activities.

Although Mr. Kerry is second-best to Mr. Obama’s first choice of yes-woman U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, he is nevertheless in line with Mr. Obama’s highly disturbing, reckless and weakened foreign policy and national security philosophy.
