John Kerry was right.

Kerry and Obama, SFRC

There's not much I can add to the general primary race blather that hasn't been said ten times over by people who can say it ten times better than I.

Once again, I'd like to mention how spectacular the reporting of Al Giordano has been over at The Field. If you appreciate his reporting as much as I do, please consider contributing to the cause. It's reader contributions alone that have kept him reporting ever since Super Tuesday.

There is one thing I have to say that I haven't read elsewhere, and that is to note that by going out on a limb for something he believes in (i.e. Obama's candidacy), John Kerry comes out looking both smart and prescient. Once again. It's great to see integrity triumph, even if I still wish it had triumphed four years ago.

thanks. John Kerry gets major points for this, for just the reasons you've mentioned. Even though the MSM and blogosphere haven't said much about this, Kerry's endorsement, AND his all-out, boots-on-the-ground campaigning for , have been noticed by some. When he came to Harvard Law School the day before the MA primary, to energize the 500 or so Obama phone-bankers there, he was greeted by a spontaneous standing ovation, and saluted with a second one when he left. Nice to see him getting the recognition he deserves from time to time. Even, as you said, if it comes 4 years later than I wanted . ..
