Until very recently, Senator Kerry has kept secret that his immigrant grandfather was a Czech Jew – one may speculate as to why. (John’s brother, Cameron, alive & well, is an orthodox Jew.) Being an ‘opportunistic elitist’, & seeking a political career in Massachusetts, he adopted the Irish surname, “Kerry” – you expected, “Cohen”?
He dumped his wife of 18 years & mother of their 2 daughters, divorced her, & courted the Gilbey Gin heiress. However, when the widow Teresa Heinz became available, he wed the older billionairess in a heart beat.
A man of principle? I think not! Putting aside the debates on Iraq, taxes, etc., the thought of such an ambitious ‘persona’ in the White House is frightening.
