John Kerry spent Saturday night hosting the Kennedy Center Honorees at the State Department and Sunday night sitting next to the president’s box for the gala performance. And Sunday morning? He cleaned up puppy poop. The Secretary of State, wearing a bright red knitted hat, showed up at Volta Park in Georgetown with his 7-month-old yellow Lab, Ben. After a pleasant exchange with another dog owner, Ben did his business and Kerry pulled out a bag and cleaned up — while his security detail watched. Some things you just can’t delegate.
