Kerry fortifies war chest, keeps momentum for 2008 (Andrew Miga, March 9, 2005, Boston Herald)

It was an intimate political gathering: Sen. John F. Kerry playing host to about 100 of his richest friends.

Kerry huddled with his top fund-raisers Monday night in his Georgetown mansion, preparing a massive money push aimed at keeping the defeated presidential nominee's ambitions alive.

``He wants to keep his team together,'' said one member of Kerry's national finance team. ``He's looking ahead. He will be a strong voice in the party.''

The Clintons almost have to be behind this.

This is gonig to be one of those campaigns where people are cringing and hiding their eyes in embarassment by the time the Iowa caucuses roll around.

Will this be the "More Gore in '04" for 2008?

Actually, it is probably Karl Rove and Hillary, scheming together. Or maybe Lee Atwater, reaching from beyond the grave.

"Will he whine?"

Forget the whine, will he sign his 180?

Harold Stassen finally has his heir.

Sandy: How could he possibly find the time to do that? He's a very busy Jr. Senator from Mass.

He wouldn't sign it if Inhofe, Sessions, or Cornyn waved it under his nose on the Senate floor.

But Hillary might be able to persuade him.

Maybe Al could jump into the race. This will last until mid-summer when Theressa throws him out of the house.

It is way too early to think about 2008, but that doesn't mean that I am contemplating my options for the future. I am going to focus on being an effective United States Senator, loving husband and devoted father. I will also be focusing on how I, and those who supported my candidacy, can continue to champion the issues and causes that almost 50% of the American voters hold dear and cherish.

Ummm, New England liberal speak with forked tongue.

Kerry will get to play the role of the Washington Generals during the primaries to Hillary's Globetrotters. Very much the same way that Bradley did with Gore in 2000.

kerry; a case study in pathology. who in their right mind would fund this creep ? i am waiting for that sweet sweet moment when his humiliation is complete, and he is crushed in public. i almost would pay to see him debate hillary.

But will Kerry and Edwards (and the rest) really attack her?

Paging Chris Lehane....

What a movie this will make someday.

Show me the 180!

If they get rid of that Constitutional provision barring the foreign-born from running for President, I still say that Te-Ray-Zah will dump Ketchup Boy like a used tampon and marry Fabio.

Jabba's a pretty heavy slug and if you could get him rolling he'd evince immense momentum (p=m*v). Problem is that he is so weighed down by his 2004 campaign not even the Emperor and all his storm-troopers could muster the impetus to get Jabba rolling again.
