John Kerry and Elections
Their ads and I have no opinion on the validity of their messages, though I know senator Kerry is a good man and a true hero, are hurting Kerry's chances to win the election.
Some might seem surprised by Kerry's sudden downfall. I'm not. This whole he served, he didn't serve issue was a major part of the presidential election in '92.
I did not serve in Vietnam. I was studying at the time. I don't know whether I want to be involved in this issue. I don't know.
John Kerry phoned me and asked me to help him counter senator Bob Dole's criticisms. I don't know. I don't know.
I do want to help him win. I think he's the better man, but to throw myself into the middle of a discussion between veterans. I don't know.
I adviced John to call John Podesta. He's one of the best political operators on the Democratic side.
I will contribute more to the campaign, more than I was planning. More than John Kerry had asked me to do, but if he wants me to do more, I will do more.
I hope maintaining this daily diary can help in our efforts to get John Kerry elected.
I want to thank all of you for your wonderful e-mails. Bobbi Lamoon is right here next to me. She's now working with the John Kerry campaign. I asked John to loan her to me for the duration of the election campaign.
It's good to be back.
