If Kerry "has big heels to fill", why was he the Democratic nominee for President in 2004 and not Hillary Clinton? Kerry is obviously vastly more qualified than Clinton. His saying this is simply the "PC" thing to say; it's especially appealing to liberal female voters.

I'm not so sure John Kerry will have the work ethic of Hilary Clinton. He didn't even have to campaign in Massachusettes to get re-elected. I think the President will miss Ms. Clinton, and quickly.

What a joke. Kerry is way more qualified than Hilary ever dreamed of being. Plus he has too much integrity to cover up the killing of an ambassador and 3 others. Obama will miss Hilary because Kerry won't put up with all the lying and deceit. Plus Kerry is way more qualified as president even though Obama has done the job for 4 years.

The headline is a joke, right? She never did anything but lie and coverup her incompetence. Well, she did burn a lot of jet fuel jetting around the globe.

"If Kerry "has big heels to fill", why was he the Democratic nominee for President in 2004 and not Hillary Clinton?"-------- Maybe it's because she didn't run that year.

"Big heels to fill?" What difference at this point does it make?

saying "big heels" is NOT PC . maybe even opposite of that. i was going to say the writer was dumb about that . john k. ? said that?. job ! to do. SO stop worrying about your shoe size; etc. i wonder if that statement , of his?, is a compliment to another professional.cautious may = diplomatic.

Oh my. I know Kerry was a popular choice, and there were different reasons for it from both sides of the aisle that we all know so I won't go into them. But what I witnessed at the confirmation hearing just about made me ill. Kerry had every answer covered with a politically correct answer; canned if you will. He took no chances and it will be interesting to see what he does. My guess? Nothing, unless he has to.

PS... I got a kick out of his statement that he wanted to start the middle east peace talks again. Just another politician in a long line that smiled a lot, declared peace, shook hands, and got on a plane to come home. If Kerry wants to impress me, stop the rhetoric, and tell us your plan for a two state solution in the middle east. Otherwise, don't bother.
