President Obama and Penny PritzkerCredit: Chicago Tribune
President Obama began this week by tapping Charlotte mayor Anthony Foxx to head the Department of Transportation and ended it by nominating major campaign donor Penny Pritzker for Secretary of Commerce.
At a press conference in Istanbul, Secretary of State John Kerry compared the Boston bombing victims to the pro-Palestinian Turkish activists killed by Israeli Defense Forces during the 2010 Gaza flotilla incident. Blogger Carl in Jerusalem, a Boston native, writing for Israel Matzav might have said it best comparing 8 year old Martin Richard to the those aboard the Pro-Palestinian flotilla.
In his first foreign policy victory as Secretary of State, John Kerry won a case of Molson Canadian lager from Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird. John Kerry had bet a case of Sam Adams. The two made a bet over who would win the women’s world hockey championship (yup, there’s a women’s world hockey championship).
No word on whether Kerry will share the beer with Amanda Kessel who scored the winning goal in the third period to beat Canada 3-2.
The Washington Post is reporting the former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown will not run in the special election to replace senior Senator John Kerry who was confirmed by the Senate earlier this week to be President Obama’s next Secretary of State.
Senator John Kerry, the next Secretary of State made an oops after retrieving his coat from the coat check.
Hopefully, this isn’t a harbinger of things to come… of course it probably is.
