  •  Kerry coming home (none)
    rox63 posted this on Kerry's long diary.
    The following is the entire article.

    Former US presidential candidate John Kerry has been forced to pull plans to visit the North this weekend.

    The Democratic Massachusetts senator, who challenged President George Bush unsuccessfully in the 2004 election, was due to visit the University of Ulster in Derry to deliver a prestigious lecture on security in the 21st century.

    He was also expected to meet a number of the North's politicians during his visit to the Magee Campus in Derry.

    University authorities have been told to postpone his lecture because of pressing business in the US Senate in Washington.

    Mr Kerry would have joined a distinguished list of guest speakers who have delivered lectures under a series commemorating veteran Democratic politician Tip O'Neill.

    They include former US president Bill Clinton, United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan and ex-European Commission president Romano Prodi.

        Can't really do it. Thank you though. I agree we need one, and posted a few requests for others to do one that we could keep on the reco list today.

        I also just read a Reuters article that Reid said today that we don't have enough votes for a filibuster.

        Very depressing. Don't know what to think now. Tried to call Reid and Kerry and their lines are tied up. Not surprisingly.
