John Kerry Elected ... Jury Foreman

BOSTON - Sen. John Kerry's public profile and prosecutorial past didn't spare him from performing that most mundane of civic responsibilities — jury duty.

Kerry was not only chosen this week to sit on a jury in Suffolk Superior Court, but also was elected foreman.

The case involved two men who sued the city for injuries suffered in a 2000 car accident involving a school principal. The Kerry-led jury rejected their claim Tuesday, and his fellow jurors said the state's junior senator was a natural leader.

"I just found him to be a knowledgeable, normal person," said Cynthia Lovell, a nurse and registered Republican who says she now regrets voting for President Bush in last year's election. "He kept us focused. He wanted us all to have our own say."

The former Democratic presidential candidate reported for duty Monday and none of the lawyers in the case objected to putting him on the jury.

"I was a little surprised," Kerry said of being selected for jury duty.

"I enjoyed it," he said. "It was very, very interesting and very instructive."

I'm just surprised that they rejected the claim. It's probably one of the few times that Kerry has had to work directly with his constituents.

I voted him "NOT GUILTY" before I voted him "GUILTY"

Imagine being in the jury room and having to listen to Kerry's incoherent ramblings.

Imagine being sequestered on the same jury with him.

Now you definitely have a reason to celebrate tomorrow, don't you.

Well good for him. He gets to help redistribute wealth, one lawsuit at a time.

Beats having him to it to everyone while in congress.

This is so typical of the LSM. There is NO WAY this woman is a true republican/conservative who now wishes John Kerry had been elected. NO WAY! (rolling eyes)

John Kerry a normal person? I don't think so as he is suffering PTSD from being in Cambodia that Chrismas. He is a vietnam vet, isn't he?
