Don’t compare John Kerry to Hillary Clinton: Men for tea, women for talk

People who fight for gender equality compare a man to a woman. Is it really fair to compare Hillary Clinton to John Kerry? What they have in common is selling US foreign policy to the rest of the world.

Naturally, women are more diplomatic than men. Has Hillary Clinton achieved some diplomatic accomplishments during her four years as US Secretary of State? It is hard to say. The Israeli-Palestinian issues are still on the table, the Arab world is still burning.

We certainly expect John Kerry to follow her footsteps and protect US interests around the world. We cannot compare apples to plums. John Kerry has his chance to be himself, not Hillary. As the Somali of Somalia say, “Men for tea, women for talk.”
