article imageVideo: John Kerry did a guest spot on the sitcom 'Cheers'

Boston - As John Kerry is confirmed as the new Secretary of State with a 94-3 vote, it is interesting to note that he once had a guest spot on the popular sitcom "Cheers" in the 1990's.
Back in 1992, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts was one of several politicians who appeared in a cameo on the popular show. Michael Dukakis and Tip O'Neill were apparently the other two.
The above video clip is from 1992, when the two Cheers characters, Cliff Clavin and Norm Peterson, mistake Kerry for a local TV anchorman and want his autograph.
Kerry was happy to oblige, but when the pair referred to a news report he was confused and said, "No, I'm John Kerry. Senator Kerry? From Massachusetts?"
He apparently also appears in a telecast from the Bull and Finch pub in Boston in 1993 which was hosted by Jay Leno. However, Leno later called it a "mistake" because it had been spoiled by the presence of the entire drunken cast of "Cheers."
Leno reportedly said at the time that, "All those celebrities got there early and started drinking early."
"And with the exception of Sen. (John) Kerry (D-Mass.), everybody was really drunk."
Meanwhile in more current news, and as reported on Digital Journal, Kerry has won the position of Secretary of State by a landslide senate vote of 94-3.
In his speech to the Senate he said, "What a privilege to work with you and now to work with you in a different way. I thank you very, very much," Kerry said.
