  •  I'm not sure we disagree (none)
    My comment is based on the fact that Kerry has come out vocally in favor of a state constitutional ban. It is not at all unusual for the Federal reps to make their positions on state issues well known, both Schumer and Clinton regulary weigh in on NY state issues, as do Kennedy and Kerry regarding Ma. state ones.
    There is no question that if Kerry does indeed weigh in on the Ma. state ban that it will, and in my opinion should, affect how he is viewed by Democrats on a national level. Equal rights is a national issue even when the battleground is a state.
    •  You are right; we do agree (none)
      Kerry has a MA citizen's right to speak out on a state issue (as do Clinton and Shumer in NY) but their opinion carries much more weight and also reflects on their positions in their federal offices.
