CHARLOTTE, N.C.–Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), whose 2004 presidential candidacy was wounded by accusations of being a flip flopper–for it before he was against it–got even on Thursday in a rip roaring convention speech where he excoriated Mitt Romney as a foreign policy lightweight.

Kerry, a foreign policy specialist–a possible Secretary of State in a second Obama term–said Romney has had so many positions on intervening in Libya…”talk about being for it before you were against it.”
