    It's often asserted that Kerry is a better diplomat. If there any evidence of this anywhere? (Other than meeting with the NV in France?)

    But seriously, what in Kerry's record demonstrates any ability as a diplomat?

    He negotiated pretty good with the Viet Cong, but other than that...

    Yes he is more of a diplomat, since his father was a Diplomat, hence like father like son, and his genetic DNA passed to him by his father making similar qualities in him and the code is trying to evolve to be better then it's original in order to ensure survival.

    You are kidding, right? Because if you are not, you need to get some help very quickly.

    Considering that Bush is hated in the world(with the exception of Polland, we must never forget Poland), Kerry will be a better diplomat.

    So, by taking your route of thinking, Bush is a better President since his father was once President. Oh, and an even better diplomant since his father was a diplomat (Ambassador to China) and more intelligent since his father was an intelligence officer (head of the CIA). By all counts, Bush is just better!!!

    I didn't ask about Bush. I know that everyone on the whole planet hates GWB but I asked what in KERRY's RECORD demonstrates his abiltiy as a diplomat.

    And how can you say Kerry will be a better diplomat? His campaign rheotric always asserts that he'll get allies like France & Germany to help in Iraq when they have categoriacally stated they won't help. That's not diplomacy, that's delusion. (Or is it a bold-faced lie? I can't tell.)

    be hated in the world but that is due to massive envy and a complete misunderstading of The United States.. In addition we Americans are completely disinterested in a global popularity contest... Hell most would probably prefer the Red Chinese..... The world is jealous and envious of the position The United States holds in the world... Euro's especially can't stand that their voice now means hardly anything to The United States or the rest of the world...
    And as Machiavelli pointed out in the early 16th century "It is better to be feared than loved".. I'll take the fear right now... A real and continuing fear of Te United States and it's reaction to Islamic Facism is the only thing separating the world from anarchy...

    im more worried about his diplomatic plans with Iran. im sure he would succeed at them. I mean can you see the Iranians turning down any nuclear material provided by the west? Of course the Iranians would be happy to accept the deal and theyll be laughing their heads off when washington is nuked.
