Secretary of State John Kerry is miffed and hurt. As Olivier Knox of Yahoo reports, Kerry feels that “his friend,” Senator John McCain, crossed some kind of line when Kerry testified before the Senate Foreign Relations committee. Knox quotes a source (Mr. Unnamed) as saying:

Kerry “felt betrayed and surprised to see McCain so angrily rooting for failure against one of the most internationalist members of the administration...” 

Mr. Unnamed is:

… close to the secretary and requested anonymity to speak candidly about the top diplomat’s reaction.

Kerry did not, mercifully, claim that he was a victim of racism, even though there is a lot of that going around Washington these days.
