Obama gets a break, paging Dr. Heitkamp
I know it’s not polite to cheer at another’s misfortune but John Kerry as Secretary of State at this time in history scares me. He took a fall, broke a leg, needs convalescence, I wish him well. The president should appoint an interim Secretary of State, while Kerry recovers, which by definition must be a U.S. Senator (they won’t vote against their own) and therefore should be Heidi Heitkamp, who is not also a doctor, but is married to one.
Please Mr. President, I rarely beg, but I beg of you, face the seriousness of the mess you are in and let this wonderful, smart, capable, voice of reason get entre to your inner circle.
You must know her (I don’t), you must understand this “bump” in the road is really an opportunity to do something that will help you, and help you a lot. This woman understands the side of your own party you do not and right now, that side is needed in foreign affairs. It’s really that simple.
There are 10,000 people in the world that understand this side of things (AIPAC) and could explain it to you better than I or AIPAC, but none of them are Democratic, female, smart, pragmatic, honest and incorruptible U.S. Senators, except of course, the afore mentioned, Heidi Heitkamp.
Bad name I will admit, Spielberg would make her change it in a second, but you’re not Spielberg and thank god for the world, she choose not to be an actress, but a state treasury, prosecutor, lawyer, statesman, while raising a family and of course, now holding down the Senate, so to speak..
She’s so balanced, she might uniquely have the perspective to see your vision and the oppositions real Rubicon’s; be they in the U.S. Senate, Moscow, or Tehran.
