>>> nays are three, and one respondent present. and john forbes kerry , to be our next secretary of state, is confirmed.
>> the senate voting present was john kerry , who stepped aside. the no-votes were from the two embarrassment texas voters have sent to the united states senate , and from an oklahoma senator who could easily lose a spelling bee if asked to spell secretary or state. john kerry 's resignation letter to governor deval patrick , wrote, to inform you of the privilege for serving them 28 years, and with great pride what i've been able to contribute to massachusetts and our country, i hereby resign my seat in the senate, effective friday, in order to assume the responsibility of secretary of state. john kerry will make his final speech on the senate floor tomorrow. and governor patrick has indicated he will announce his choice for interim senator tomorrow. as the governor well lknows i have been insisting on this program for weeks now there is only one person who the governor could choose who would be ready to take over the senate seat at 4:30, only one person who already knows everything there is to know about how congress works, and how to get things done. only one person who has the experience to do that and properly represent the people of massachusetts in congress, in the process, and that is of course barney frank , the political media in boston seems convinced the governor will not choose barney frank , but the governor has committed to join me on this program for his first national interview after he makes his announcement. so if the governor doesn't choose barney, that is going to be like a wicked weird segment. coming up. they have admitted they're the stupid party, but how do they fix that problem? one republican says let the stupid ones have their own party.
>>> and in the rewrite, what happens when a father testifies about his murdered child. he is heckled by people who love guns just a little too much for their own
