Kerry was appointed.. Rand would have been outnumbered and then he would have Kerry doing everything in his power to sabatoge him.
Rand has made it clear, POTUS Rand Paul "has a nice ring to it".
So, Kerry was going to be in, vote or not.
A statement like your means to me, you really really don't understand politics. You have issues.
Issues are not enough to win.
May I suggest you study Rand? Rand is brilliant, he has eatched his father all his life, and he believes he can RESTORE THE REPUBLIC.. but he does not have a majic wand, and he's not interested in being a host for some MSM TV show.
