    Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect...

    Republican Chuck Hagel is going to endorse Democrat Bob Kerrey. That's the word from the Kerrey camp this evening, as they prepare to make a "major" announcement tomorrow. A spokesman with Kerrey's campaign says Hagel – a former Nebraska U.S. Senator and a Republican – will back Kerrey in his race against Republican Deb Fischer. Hagel's endorsement comes as polls have shown the race between Kerrey and Fischer tightening down the home stretch. Hagel's backing could go a long way with independents. And, it clearly underscores Kerrey's contention that he is the person in the race who can win Republican...

Instead, Martin in the guise of a home crafts expert shows us how to make a wad of paper. Your humble correspondent found the advice on how to make a wad of paper quite useful.

    Former Sen. Bob Kerrey has decided against trying to regain his Nebraska seat in the November elections, almost certainly gifting it to Republicans, RealClearPolitics reports. Incumbent Ben Nelson, considered the most conservative Democrat in the upper chamber, is retiring and Kerrey was seen as the Democrats’ last best chance for keeping the seat in the blue column. But after weeks of toying with the idea, Kerrey decided not to run, according to RealClearPolitics. “I have chosen what I believe is best for my family and me,” he said in a statement released Tuesday. Kerrey was running well behind Republicans vying...

    Fellow Conservatives: Yesterday, former Democrat U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey reversed his earlier decision and announced that he will in fact run for the open U.S. Senate seat in Nebraska. After leaving the Senate in 2001, Kerrey moved to New York City where he even considered running for mayor. Kerrey's decision to move back to Nebraska to run in this Republican state proves one thing: national Democrats have convinced Kerrey that the Republican front-runner, state Attorney General Jon Bruning, is vulnerable. Fortunately, Republicans in Nebraska have an alternative. State Treasurer Don Stenberg is a true conservative with the integrity and record...

Bob Kerrey said Tuesday he will not run for the Nebraska Senate seat he gave up more than a decade ago, shutting down hopes for a bid both parties called Democrats' best chance to hold the seat but that Kerrey himself described as a longshot. The 1992 presidential candidate and former Nebraska governor had considered seeking the Democratic nomination to succeed Sen. Ben Nelson, who replaced Kerrey in the Senate in 2001. Nelson's decision not to run for a third term this year came as a boon to Republicans, who must net four seats...

    A possible title bout between political heavyweights Mike Johanns and Bob Kerrey for the U.S. Senate has the makings of a marquee matchup. The clash of past champions would offer voters a choice between two distinctly different personalities, each with a lengthy public record to defend. It would be a fight with national implications: Democrats would view it as a chance to widen their Senate majority; Republicans would be forced to defend a seat in a red state. The only thing missing? The fighters themselves. Neither man has entered the ring, despite being heavily recruited by his party. Democrat Kerrey...

    The political winds are picking up in Nebraska, but determining which direction they'll go has become a game of speculation swirling around the intentions of Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel. The air of uncertainty began when Hagel, 60, promised to discuss his political future at an Omaha news conference in March, and many expected the second-term senator to announce a bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Instead, Hagel simply said he was leaving his options open, raising a number of questions and the possibility that he might not run for re-election. The lack of certainty foreshadowed a possible showdown that could...

John McCain received a cantankerous reception during his appearance at the New School commencement Friday, where dozens of faculty members and students turned their backs and raised signs in protest and a distinguished student speaker pointedly mocked him as he sat silently nearby. The historically liberal university has been roiled in controversy in recent weeks over the selection of McCain, a conservative Republican and likely 2008 presidential candidate, to deliver the commencement address. Some 1,200 students and faculty signed petitions asking the university president, former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, to rescind the invitation. Petitioners said...

    If hypocrisy and doublethink were Olympic events, New York’s academic community would be awash with gold medals. Two controversies this month have shown the extent to which noble and supposedly immutable concepts like free speech and opposition to censorship can be tweaked and twisted to suit political agendas. The New School’s president, Bob Kerrey, has invited Senator John McCain to address the university’s commencement ceremony on Friday. Some students are so angry about this that they have organized a petition to get the invite revoked. Senator McCain’s crime appears to be that he is a conservative.

Bob Kerrey: Iraq-al Qaeda Docs "Tie [Saddam] into a Circle that Meant to Damage the United States" From today's New York Sun: CAIRO, Egypt - A former Democratic senator and 9/11 commissioner says a recently declassified Iraqi account of a 1995 meeting between Osama bin Laden and a senior Iraqi envoy presents a "significant set of facts," and shows a more detailed collaboration between Iraq and Al Qaeda. In an interview yesterday, the current president of the New School University, Bob Kerrey, was careful to say that new documents translated last night by ABC...

    Bob Kerrey: No plans to run for NYC mayor 4/19/2005, 11:53 p.m. ET The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey said Tuesday he does not intend to run for mayor of New York City, ending a brief flirtation with the race. "I am not running for the mayor of New York City, nor do I intend to be a candidate," the Democrat said in a statement. He said he "seriously considered" running for mayor because he has deep concerns about the future of the city. He said he would continue to speak out on issues...

    Thrown off balance by former United States Senator Bob Kerrey's musings about whether to run for mayor, New York politicians struggled yesterday to gauge his seriousness, while aides to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg expressed bewilderment with Mr. Kerrey's motives. Publicly at least, the Democratic candidates for mayor reacted with caution to Mr. Kerrey's comment on Saturday that he was disillusioned with Mr. Bloomberg and was considering getting into the race himself. Mr. Kerrey, a Democrat who is president of New School University, said he would make a final decision in the next few days. Aides to several candidates said privately...

    Former United States Senator Bob Kerrey, the president of the New School University and a Democratic candidate for president in 1992, said yesterday that he was considering a run for mayor of New York City, declaring that Michael R. Bloomberg had failed to fight Washington Republican policies that Mr. Kerrey said endangered the city's finances and security. Mr. Kerrey, in an interview, also questioned why Mr. Bloomberg had invested so much energy in trying to build a stadium on the West Side of Manhattan. Mr. Kerrey said it would make more sense to put the stadium in another borough, and...

    "Hell no, we won't go" is the wrong liberal approach on Social Security reform.The late Pat Moynihan used to joke when I asked him why liberals were so reluctant to consider changing Social Security so that it guaranteed wealth as well as income: "It's because they worry that wealth will turn Democrats into Republicans." Leaving aside that possible correlation, it will be a shame if liberal voices, values and ideas are not brought into the debate initiated by President Bush's Social Security reform proposal. To make certain the reforms are done correctly liberal thinking is urgently needed.There is no doubt...

"I like the city, I like the school and I'm not done," Kerrey said in an interview with The Associated Press at his office in lower Manhattan. He said he intends over the next six years to continue to improve the reputation of the liberal arts-based university. "We don't have precise figures, but we...

    JEWISH WORLD REVIEW ^ | NOVEMBER 30, 2004 | GEORGE WILL
    The White House used the front page of Monday's Washington Post to cashier a Cabinet member. A story headlined "Bush to Change Economic Team" said: "One senior administration official said Treasury Secretary John W. Snow can stay as long as he wants, provided it is not very long." Obviously the office will need filling before "very long." The president should fill it with Alan Greenspan. He has headed the Federal Reserve System under four presidents — since August 1987. Now he is needed elsewhere. Having been in Washington most of the 30 years since he became chairman of President Gerald...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Get this. Fox News yesterday had a segment. It was in the afternoon. The Kerry campaign, the John Kerry campaign, in angry response to the Bush campaign claim that Senator Kerry attended very few intelligence briefings. We talked about this yesterday, and we had the audio from Pat Roberts, the Republican chairman of the committee and he said, "Hey, if Senator Kerry will give us permission to release the attendance records of both the public and the closed hearings, we can settle this," because the Bush campaign is out there saying this guy doesn't care about intelligence,...

    That was fast. And so predictable. Former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey dove headfirst into the presidential campaign last week, joining three other John Kerry [related, bio] partisans in calling for Bush strategist Karl Rove's resignation. And he also had the gall to call the president a ``partisan political hack'' and a ``hypocrite'' on the ``Today Show,'' all the while claiming he was avoiding politics per agreement of the 9/11 Commission. ``The 9/11 Commission agreed not to use anything we've gotten off of the . . . report to bring into a political campaign,'' Kerrey said. That's splitting a hair nicely,...
