    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...

    Actor and comedian Steve Martin is a wild and crazy guy so it is no surprise that he would make a bizarre political endorsement. In this case the endorsement was for Bob Kerrey who is running for the senate seat from Nebraska. However, Steve Martin does not once mention Bob Kerrey or anything political in the "endorsement." 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. In fact, for years I have struggled to...

    Here’s an interesting twist on the adoring political spouse: Does it matter to voters if a wife or husband really, really doesn’t want to be part of the campaign? The former “Saturday Night Live” writer, 55, met the glamorous bachelor in 1995 when he was still in office. The two fell in love and then “I lured him to my hometown, New York City, when he decided not to run again,” she wrote. They married in 2001 and settled in Greenwich Village where they’ve raised their son Henry, now 10. Describing herself as “secretive” and “so private,” Paley said she...

    He was a heartland heartthrob: a Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor winner in Vietnam; a self-made millionaire; a brainy governor whose approval rating topped 70 percent; a Democrat who won a landslide election to the Senate in a year when Michael Dukakis failed to get even 40 percent of Nebraska’s vote for president. Oh, and he dated one of the biggest movie stars of the day, Debra Winger. Now, after living in New York City for more than 10 years, Kerrey has returned and is trying to win back his old Senate seat. But it has been nearly two...

Dr Raoul is displaying a sign that says "If Osama was a piece of tail-Clinton would have nailed him. Kristinn is dressed as Sandy Berger, complete with Top Secret documents stuffed in his pants. When Kerrey arrived Kristinn asked him if Berger should go to jail. Raoul asked him if he was going to stay at the meeting or leave for more important matters. Kerrey gave them a look then ducked inside only to return outside to ask them who they were and what were their names. Kerrey then called Dr. Raoul an A*****e. When questioned on the language he stated that it was OK to curse because he isn't a politician.</p>

    When Bob Kerrey registered to vote last month in Douglas County and listed his sister's address as his home — swearing under oath that it was his residence — he fully intended to live there for some time, he said Monday. A day later, Kerrey said, he “lucked out” in finding his own place when real estate developer Jay Noddle offered to let him live in his guest home. “I thought it would take longer to establish residency,” Kerrey said in an interview Monday. “I lucked out.”

    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...

    Seante Update with Sen Jim DeMint - Email | 03/01/2012 | Sen Jim DeMint
    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...

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Former Sen. 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...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 -- The National Republican Senatorial Committee issued the following news release: As former Nebraska Democrat Senator Bob Kerrey turned New York City resident returns to the Cornhusker State, Nebraskans may be surprised to learn where Mr. Kerrey stands on a wide variety of issues, including President Obama's $2.5 trillion healthcare bill. What Nebraskans will quickly learn is that not only does Mr. Kerrey support government-run healthcare, but that Kerrey is even more liberal than Ben Nelson on the issue because he supports the government-run public option. Even more remarkable is that Kerrrey once told a group of...

    Is it the return of Bob Kerrey? The former Nebraska governor says he is coming “home” to Nebraska next week to talk with friends and others about another possible run for the U.S. Senate. Kerrey says he will make his decision quickly, after determining whether he has the “skills” and “experience” needed to help Nebraska and the nation address some of its problems, including the nation's debt woes. “I don't presume for a moment I would automatically win. But, I have to persuade myself, if I did win, I could do something others couldn't,” Kerrey said Friday. He previously served...

As Will Smith once said, “Barack Obama as a person is a fantastic individual, but Barack Obama as an idea marks an evolutionary flash point for humanity.” Let him go be an “idea” while someone else deals with the bricks-and-mortar stuff.It’s not like that’s what we elect presidents to do, right?

    As the debate on Afghanistan comes to the fore, a well respected Democrat has urged Barack Obama to emulate the wartime courage and leadership of former President George W. Bush by implementing the 'surge' strategy recommended by Gen. Stanley McChrystal.Former Sen. Bob Kerrey, a Medal of Honor recipient of the Vietnam war, wrote an op-ed published in The Wall Street Journal Friday night that congratulated Obama on his Nobel Peace Prize but then went on to criticize Obama for being "naive" and apologizing for America too much.

    Ties between White House, Sept 11 chief By HOPE YEN, Associated Press Writer Sun Feb 3, 6:25 PM ET WASHINGTON - The Sept. 11 commission's executive director had closer ties with the White House than publicly disclosed and tried to influence the final report in ways that the staff often perceived as limiting the Bush administration's responsibility, a new book says. Philip Zelikow, a friend of then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, spoke with her several times during the 20-month investigation that closely examined her role in assessing the al-Qaida threat. He also exchanged frequent calls with the White House, including...
