Re: On 9/11 Panel, Bob Kerrey Seconds the Emotion (washingtonpost.com)
Yes, this is indeed the Kerrey who was speculated to be on Kerry's VP list. As a fmr Nebraska Senator, and a popular fmr Governor, Kerrey could influence the voters in the Western states like Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas. He is also a Vietnam veteran, a fmr Navy SEAL and a recipient of the Medal of Honor. He lost a leg in Vietnam. He has also served on the Senate Intelligence committee.
One reason for him to be unpopular among the participants here: he served on the Agriculture Commitee, and has been an ardent supporter of farm subsidies.
