Could there be a more Kerryesque way to begin a political campaign than with some flip-flopping?
Kerry’s flip-flopping skills had faded somewhat in recent years, reduced to being for bombing Syria before being against it (or the other way around), but if he’s going to begin his pointless 2020 presidential campaign, why not with some flip-flopping over the essential question?
How do we go from…
John Kerry won’t rule out 2020 White House run – CBS News – 5 Days Ago
John Kerry on 2020: “I doubt very much I’ll be running for office again” – CBS News – 1 Day Ago
Man, that John Kerry is a decisive leader who is quick to make up his mind and then make it up again.
If Kerry were going to fake a run, this would be a good time to do it to pump up his otherwise uninteresting book. But instead, Kerry has disappointed his dozens of fans in the State Department instead.
Wait a day though, and the headline will be, “John Kerry May Run in 2044.”
But this will really disappoint Kerry’s biggest political base. Terrorists.
Maariv reported that former US secretary of state John Kerry met in London with a close associate of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Hussein Agha, for a long and open conversation about a variety of topics. Agha apparently reported details of the conversation to senior PA officials in Ramallah. A senior PA official confirmed to Maariv that the meeting took place.
Kerry hinted that many in the American establishment, as well as in American intelligence, are dissatisfied with Trump’s performance and the way he leads their country.
He surprised his interlocutor by saying he was seriously considering running for president in 2020. When asked about his advanced age, he said he was not much older than Trump and would not have an age problem.
First Trump cuts off UNRWA and then Kerry runs away. The PLO really can’t catch a break.
