John Kerry: I Get A Little Uptight When I Hear People Say How "Exceptional" Americans Are

Americans, he says, proclaim their exceptionalness in a manner reminiscent of Genjhis Khan.

...I was privileged to speak to the graduating class of Yale this year, and it was particularly a pleasure because it happened to turn out to be, literally, I hate to say it, 48 years to the day that I was privileged to speak as a graduating senior to my own class. And I talked to them about sort of the world we'e in right now, but at the end I tried to remind them all, which I remind you of, we are -- I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are-- not because we're not exceptional, but because it's kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional, a lot of other places do exceptional things.

Life is just one long "strangers are nice!" episode of Sesame Street to these cats.
