Kerry Finds His Calling

Matt Bai: "Ten years ago this week, John Kerry barely held off John Edwards in Wisconsin's Democratic primary, prolonging for another few weeks his plodding, uninspiring march to the party's presidential nomination. Kerry went on to lose an eminently winnable election, after which most Democrats in Washington expected him to disappear, like Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis."

"Kerry went the Ed Muskie route, instead. He persevered, and now, exactly a year into his tenure as secretary of state, he is enjoying the most widespread admiration of his long political life."
