20) John Kerry:  Like his predecessor, Hillary Clinton, Kerry has been habitually ineffective as Secretary of State. But even Hillary Clinton didn’t respond to a terrorist attack in Paris by taking James Taylor there to sing “You’ve Got a Friend.” 

Defining Tweet: “John Kerry brought James Taylor to Paris to sing ‘You've got friend’ to the French people. Haven't they suffered enough?” – Jon Justice
