    I find it amazing that you don't know who he is....a 2 time senator, a Navy Seal, and most of all a holder of this countrys greatest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    Nebraska is probably one of the most Conservative states in this country. It will be difficult for him to even get elected.

    Bob Kerrey is one of those guys you can apply to the Democrats in the same way that some on the left around here love to apply Barry Goldwater to the Republicans.

    The question then being . . . what happened to all the reasonable, moderate Democrats? It certainly is as fair to ask that question as it is about the Republicans. After all, the moderate Democratic Leadership Council is no more, and guys like Joe Lieberman are ostracized.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    I like Bob Kerrey a lot. More than John Kerry, that's for sure.

    Both parties have gone so far to the extreme to please their vocal minorities that nobody knows what a moderate is anymore. If you are to the right of an extreme liberal, you are an "Evangelical whacko who wants to spend on defense and bomb everybody until they believe in Jesus. Except Israel." If you re to the left of an extreme conservative, you are a "Card carrying member of Hamas who worships at the altar of Karl Marx and won't rest until America is ruined."

    .... I'll reiterate.... Who the **** is Bob Kerrey? Does he have his name on any important legislation? What has he done in the last 12-15 years that I should remember?

    So essentially some guy who stopped being relevant 15 years ago? That's why I should know who he is today?

    Joe Lieberman supported a Republican for president in the last election. For a (former) 'Democrat', that's pretty damn moderate
