John Kerry’s new ad running in Massachusetts highlights the work he has done in the Senate on veteran’s rights and issues. The legislation that Kerry has had passed in the Senate that benefits and helps veteran’s doesn’t just affect veteran’s in Massachusetts, but all across the country. And that’s why I am supporting John Kerry for Senate. Watch Kerry’s ad here:
Now, as much as I support John Kerry’s re-election in the Senate, I’d be thrilled to pieces to have Barack Obama choose Kerry as his VP. It’s a long shot, perhaps but word has it that Kerry has been vetted:
Howard Wolfson, former communications director for Hillary Rodham Clinton‘s presidential bid, stoked those rumors during an appearance Tuesday night on Fox News Channel when he said he had heard that Kerry was being vetted by the Obama team. “Look, John Kerry has been vetted,” said Wolfson. “He ran for president. I think he would be a strong choice. He’d be a good choice, especially in the context of foreign policy.” (Hat tip: The indispensable Michael Patrick Allen and his “Politico Playbook.”)
Kerry supporters can still dream… Kerry also sent out an email today “to his three million person strong list — still one of his biggest assets as a national player in the party — denouncing the new anti-Obama book by Jerome Corsi as a re-run of the Swift Boat-style attacks that were aimed at him during the ’04 campaign.”
“We’ve got to fight back every way we can,” wrote Kerry, introducing a new website called . Later in the email he writes: “You can’t just play defense against smears, pointing out how they aren’t true. You’ve got to play offense, too, exposing the whole cynical game.” That sort of language is music to the ears of the Democratic base on whom Obama is depending to produce a massive turnout in the fall.
