Kerry's Swift RetributionWall Street Journal
The country long ago moved beyond John Kerry's Presidential ambitions, but the Senator, as he seems never to tire of reminding us, has not. Now Mr. Kerry's throbbing grievances jeopardize President Bush's nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Belgium.
Late last month Sam Fox, a 77-year-old St. Louis businessman, sat before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for a confirmation hearing widely expected to be uncontroversial. But in the 2004 campaign, Mr. Fox gave $50,000 to the Kerry opposition group Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.
In everything he does, Jon Carry shows us the measure of the man he is. What a small, small man, indeed, is one who would ruin someone's ambassadorship simply because of a donation he gave. Carry will keep up these petty grievances, and nurse all his failed ambitions--and ultimately blame them on someone else. I have never heard him take responsibility for anything he has ever done.
