Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) on Friday hailed President Obama's decision to nominate Sen. John Kerry -- the longtime Massachusetts senator -- to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state. Kerry, 69, has chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee since 2009. News of his nomination comes after Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, withdrew as the top candidate for the post amid a hailstorm of criticism from Republicans on Capitol Hill for her initial remarks on the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

As a veteran, I cannot stand the thought of having John Kerry as our commander in chief. As a political opportunist, he lied and turned his back on every American who fought in the Vietnam War. Many veterans blame people like John Kerry and Jane Fonda for the fact that it was one we didn't win. This is the story of Don Lester, a Vietnam veteran who had the honor and privilege of serving among America's best. He saw heroes on a daily basis, but John Kerry claims he had no such experience in the short time he was there.

At a recent campaign event in Iowa, Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry told a group that he believes life begins at conception. In the United States Senate, he voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion. Whoa Nelly, let me get this straight. John Kerry believes a child is created at the moment of conception and condones taking the same child's life in the most violent way nine months later. By accepting the premise that life begins at conception, Kerry creates a moral dilemma for himself.

I was a lukewarm supporter of John Kerry before I saw the two presidential debates. My vote for him was going to be more a vote against President George W. Bush and his false war, cronyism and environmental irresponsibility. As I listened to Kerry's refreshingly articulate, intelligent arguments though, I heard a voice that could speak for me, someone who has the skills and strength to make the difficult decisions that will be necessary in the coming years.

Thievery won't silence residents' political views Someone stole my lawn sign. My mother-in-law, who lives across the street and up the block, had an identical sign, with the words, "John Kerry for President", planted in the middle of her front lawn. My husband and I immediately noticed that our mother's sign was also missing. I don't believe, as a neighbor suggested, that the thefts were the work of a teenage prankster. The signs went missing too close in time (sometime during the late evening or early morning)

Watching the presidential debate was a lot more fun and illuminating than I thought it would be. Now, I actually believe John Kerry when he says he would not have invaded Iraq. Kerry convinced me that he voted to authorize President George W. Bush to invade Iraq only if war was absolutely necessary. I just do not understand why Bush ever thought unilateral war was required to remove Saddam Hussein. Even though Hussein was a horrible dictator, he was contained and no threat to us. And our intelligence simply did not make a case for war, something most of our allies understood.

For the first time [after watching the debate], I saw John Kerry not only as the man who I thought could beat George Bush in the general election, but a man who is ready to be Commander in Chief. I have to tell you, I think we would be lucky to have him as our president. Mr. Bush clearly loves trumping on the fact that this is a complex world, and a complex war that only he understands ... yet continually, he leaves out specifics and details. Mr. Kerry, on the other hand, not only knows it's a complex world, but he was able to articulate that.

Josh Kleinbaum Although Democrats took a beating across the country on Tuesday, losing the presidential election and seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives, the party firmed up its support in Glendale, where an increasing immigrant population has tipped the scale. Twenty years ago, Glendale was considered a Republican stronghold. Tuesday, Glendale voters came out in force to support Democrats. John Kerry, who lost the presidential race to President Bush, received 59% of the vote in Glendale.

President George W. Bush said the words "hard work" at least 10 times during the debate. What does he know about hard work? This is a president who has spent more than 40% of his time in office at one of his three retreats, more than any other president in our history. What kind of hard work was Bush doing while John Kerry was fighting on the front lines in Vietnam? Sen. Kerry not only completed his service with honors, but has since spent 20 more years serving our country in the Senate.

Good morning, 818 readers. Today is Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. Here are some of the top headlines in the region: In a letter sent this week, Rep. Adam Schiff and two of his Congressional colleagues urged U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to press Japanese political leaders to formally recognize women used as sex slaves by the Imperial Army during World War II. The Burbank Democrat sent the letter the same week as Korean supporters...

Facing almost certain defeat in the Senate, the White House on Wednesday withdrew the ambassadorial nomination of Sam Fox, who contributed $50,000 to the Swift Boat veterans' controversial campaign against Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass., in the 2004 presidential race. President Bush had nominated Fox, a St. Louis businessman, to be the U.S. envoy to Belgium. The withdrawal, a rare setback for the sort of nomination that normally would sail through the Senate, reflected both the muscle Democrats are exercising in Congress and the problems likely to surround any Bush appointee linked to the attacks on Kerry.

After watching three head-to-head, albeit completely neutered debates between George W. Bush and John Kerry, I'm still amazed to see Bush's apologists acknowledging that he has all the charisma of a Waco used-car salesman and the communication skills of Koko the gorilla, but still think he'd be more fun at a barbecue -- hence his appeal as the most powerful man on the face of the earth. Excuse me? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the United States is the only country in the world where the term "intellectual" is an insult.

The Oct. 7 Community Forum had several letters from John Kerry supporters who felt he had won the first presidential debate. I agree. I feel that Kerry won the debate. It struck me rather funny that the people who wrote in to express this used the same tired Kerry campaign slogans. The first gave us that old "our allies understood the intelligence was bad for going to war." We find now that they were probably on the handout list in the food-for-oil scandal Another compared Sen. Kerry to the actor Robert Stack, and I agree.
