"Awkward Turtle"

It’s really nutty, isn’t it, that coverage of Hillary Clinton’s confirmation hearings is being dominated by the idea that it’ll be super-awkward for John Kerry to sit in a hearing room with Hillary Clinton since he was another major candidate for the Secretary of State job?

Kerry and Clinton have both been in big-time politics for decades, I’m pretty certain they can muster the wherewithal to cooperate. The underlying supposition of this coverage seems to be that there’s some kind of shortfall of noteworthy substantive issues related to the conduct of US foreign policy that we could speculate about. And that’s nuts.
