'Thanks,' from second place
The Des Moines Register reports that JF Kerry will be in town Friday evening to thank them for their support in the caucuses last January. MSM pundits were stunned that Kerry and John Edwards bested Howard Dean in the State, prompting the former Vermont governor famously to list several States and exclaim: "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!"
The paper tells us:
Kerry had said he would support keeping the caucuses first, but his influence is diminished in a party looking to rebuild itself and rebound from consecutive presidential election losses.JF thinks he has a mandate to pursue the issues for which he fought in his campaign. Right now, I can think of only a few. He wanted to inspect cargo holds. And last February, Kerry pledged to name a salmon czar.
