Protester Interrupts Kerry Confirmation Hearing

A female protester interrupted John Kerry's opening remarks, shouting about the Middle East. After the brief interruption, Kerry took it in stride, remarking that people have strong opinions about what the government does, and that the protest was a good exclamation point for his opening statement.

Although John Kerry lacks even a modicum of charisma, his measured and deliberate attitude is precisely what is called for in international diplomacy. The very same characteristic (or lack thereof) that arguably cost him the 2004 presidential election, should prove an asset in the office he's currently seeking. 

In his remarks, Kerry choked up while talking about his father taking him and his siblings around the world. He said he wishes everyone could see that hard and dangerous work that diplomats do around the world.
