Comment: Hello my name is Senator John Kerry

(See in situ)


Hello my name is Senator John Kerry

and I'm not here to take your time. I'm not here to make some long winded speech about values. I won't stand before you and prognosticate or ballyhoo or congratulage myself. I cannot insinuate myself upon you this day or toot my own horn or let my voice draw out in sonorous gravity, no, that is not what I am here to do. I'm not here to make me listen to me, in truth, I'm here to make me listen to you, the American people and that is what I intend to do. It's not my place as John Kerry to tell you what to think and feel but to convey, from my deep heart, what I feel. So I won't presume to take up your time. It's not what I'm here for. And I didn't have any....

(please somebody stop me)

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.
