Exclusive Meet the Press interview with Sec. Kerry Today Nov. 10

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3032608/#53477268

Other story will be discussion of impact of VA and NJ elections (including interview with, oh, no- more Christie! but roundtable discussion of VA -- and cliffhanger election on attorney general's race there-- could possibly be interesting.)

1. It is always easy to underestimate David Gregory's agressivity and hawkishness,

After a series of questions that could all be summarized by "are you not stupid to believe Iran" (Kerry did very well with that), he tried to have him talk about his comments on JFK's assassination (it surprised many people. Really? I know a lot more people who think there were more than one person involved than the opposite. Anyway, he refuse to even talk about the issue).

2. Watching that interview reminded me all over again

how completely annoying, self-important and idiotic David Gregory is.
I didn't always agree with Tim Russert, but he had a dignity and seriousness that's totally lacking in his successor.

3. I completely agree - Gregory was completely obnoxious toward Kerry,

then close to a Christie groupie.

I hated that he framed most questions in such a way that he was taking Netanyahu's position as the correct position. I think Kerry did a very good job on that. I hated that he asked - out of context - about the JFK comment. The fact is on the Brokaw segments, JK is clear that he is not speaking of a second shooter - but rather that they didn't get to what motivated him - such as his time in Russia or his involvement with Cubans.
