John Kerry, Democratic Bad Ass - What took you so long?


This is the best video I could find of his speech, before I go to bed, but if you check it out there is no doubt you'll be impressed.

It's a bit of a double edged sword, because you know that if Kerry carried himself like this 4 years ago, we'd be talking about reelection and not praying to end our 8 year National Nightmare... but at the same time, I think losing the run for the Presidency freed him to take the liberal agenda and champion it harder than anyone other than Teddy... there's a good chance he ends up as Secretary of State, and that would be pretty sweet, but part of me hopes I get to keep voting for him... not to be schmaltzy, but he makes me proud.

UPDATE: Replaced random YouTube with TPM version that contains the speech in its entirety.

UPDATE II: Interesting tidbit from Josh Marshall, suggesting that Kerry wrote the whole speech himself. Impressive if true. Oh, and I forgot he was up for reelection, so I do get to vote for him at least one more time... and I can close my eyes and pretend it's 2004.
