The drool buckets were brought out in Washington, D.C. during Senator Kerry’s confirmation hearing this morning.
The hurl buckets were brought out elsewhere.
Senator Menendez (D-NJ) topped the drool-y cake with this exchange.
Menendez to Kerry: "Mr. Secretary" – laughs. Kerry: "I thought this would be quick" and Menendez joked "I have a sense of clairvoyance."
