John Kerry: Hero of the Day?

So Karzai has begrudgingly agreed to a run-off vote in Afghanistan’s elections.

And who comes out smelling like a rose?

John Kerry.

Read Ambinder’s take. No denying that Kerry had a major role, and may well have been the only effective diplomat to Karzai in our arsenal. Ambinder’s wonders, however, if the all the praise for Kerry isn’t part of a coordinated press strategy (perhaps from the White House?) looking to up his credibility and visibility.

He’s even money for Secretary of State should Clinton step down.
