John F. Kerry [related, bio] ``likes people'' and went so far as to say he would make a great nursery school teacher. ``He actually does feel at ease in the world,'' Heinz Kerry said. ``He likes people, in spite of whatever people might think. He'd make the best nursery school teacher in the world, bar none.'' Heinz Kerry also called her husband ``magical with children,'' adding, ``That's a new revelation to me.'' The outspoken potential first lady made the comments to a mostly female audience of 2,500 at a fund-raising luncheon here that netted $1.3 million. Kerry has long had a reputation as standoffish, and Democratic strategists fear the image may cost him in comparison to President Bush's easygoing manner. Heinz Kerry took veiled aim at Bush, saying if Kerry is elected, he will go to the United Nations and ``represent this country with great pride, but no arrogance.'' ``He will never, ever, ever send any children, or men - as he was with young men in Vietnam - into harm's way without being the first one to go out on the boat,'' she said. Addressing terrorism, she said, ``We're not going to fight terrorism with missiles, we're going to fight terrorism with ideas. And I think that John knows that, deep down.''
