More on Kerry

Ten days ago COTTonLINE gave you a link to a Jay Nordlinger National Review article describing John Kerry's unfortunate foreign policy predilections in Latin America. Now there is more.

Mary Anastasia O'Grady writes a weekly column on the Americas for The Wall Street Journal. Here she covers much of the same Kerry territory, perhaps some of it in more detail.

O'Grady's view of Kerry's record in Latin America is just as negative as Nordlinger's. She concludes:
There's a pattern here and it features Mr. Kerry continually on the wrong side of history. Asking Americans to believe that he will be any different as secretary of state is asking them to suspend disbelief.
If Kerry backs the wrong people in Latin America, why should we expect him to back the right people anywhere else?
