This comes blaring across the political wires this morning as if it were the second coming of Al Gore:
The preliminary line seems to be that what John Kerry thinks doesn’t matter a hill of beans in this world; consequently, this is just another plea for relevance and attention on the part of John “I served in Vietnam and dined with Ghengis Kahn” Kerry. And while that may be true, as illustrated by his sound defeat at the hands of the left’s favorite “idiot” George Dubya Bush, I’m not willing to go that far. I think this isn’t so much about Kerry wanting to get in on the action as it is a chance for him to twist the knife that Iowa left in Hillary’s side.
Now granted, Kerry suffers from his usual splendid sense of timing, once again as illustrated in his response (or lack thereof) to the swift boat allegations. By now we’re past Iowa and reading about Hillary’s miraculous rebirth from the fiery ashes, and whatever effect Kerry’s opinion might’ve had on the Democratic faithful has become moot.
One wonders how long he’s been flip-flopping to himself about whether to come out against her highness. It’s just another reason to be glad that Kerry didn’t win the 2004 election. (h/t: Michelle Malkin)
Update: A fitting graphic for Mr. Kerry…
Allahpundit at Hot Air wonders if Kerry’s endorsement will help Obama as much as Gore’s endorsement helped Dean’s 2004 campaign.
