    OSLO, Norway (AP) — American actress Sarah Jessica Parker praised the EU on Tuesday for winning the Nobel Peace Prize for pacifying Europe and uniting its different cultures after World War II, and she said the bloc should serve as an example to the United States, given the divisions its recent elections have brought to the surface. Parker said that while it might be controversial to have awarded the 27-nation EU the prestigious award as it struggles with a financial crisis that is causing hardship to many, it is "a terrific blueprint for us," and one the U.S. should learn...

    Am in DC tonight with old network friends and fiends. The word in DC is that John Kerry is working the media HARD to try to get himself back in headlines. Kerry still wants very much to be Prez. He is promoting the idea that, politically, Obama is a "dead man walking." Kerry claims he can save the Dem party by running in the primaries to the LEFT of Obama.... and be elected in both the primaries and the general! Idiocy... and old political news hands agree!

    AP ^ | September 30, 2010
    BOSTON —Sen. John Kerry is pushing for a dishonorable discharge for a Navy sailor convicted of fatally shooting dead his girlfriend in Virginia. Kerry sent a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates requesting an investigation into the Navy’s actions following the February 2009 death of sailor Caitlin Trask. The 20-year-old Bradford resident was killed by Darren Mackie of Wisconsin. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter but was never given a dishonorable discharge. Kerry said he cannot understand how an active duty sailor could kill another sailor and avoid a dishonorable discharge. He...

    WASHINGTON --Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he will not run in the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials. Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, plans to say he will remain in the Senate to recommit himself to efforts to extricate the United States from the war in Iraq. His decision to stay out of the presidential race reflects a realization that he would have had an uphill climb in capturing the Democratic nomination, given the other party heavyweights who are already...

    Sen. John Kerry says he deserves a second chance if he decides to take another crack at becoming president. The Massachusetts Democrat, who lost to President Bush in 2004, said it is a basic principle that "Americans give people a second chance. And if you learn something and prove you've learned something, maybe even more so. Now, I don't know what I'm going to do yet. We'll make that decision down the road." Ronald Reagan twice unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for president before he got it — and won two elections for the White House. "John McCain, their leading...

    Washington, D.C. (CNSNews.com) - U.S. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts on Tuesday told an audience at the liberal Take Back America conference that he was sorry for voting to authorize the war in Iraq, calling the entire mission "a mistake." "We were misled, we were given evidence that was not true," Kerry said. "It was wrong, and I was wrong to vote [for it]." Kerry, who led an unsuccessful bid for the presidency in 2004, said it was necessary to admit mistakes because "you cannot change the future if you''re not honest about the past." He criticized supporters of the...

    LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8 - Like a live hand grenade brought home from a distant battlefield, the 34-year-old antiwar documentary "Winter Soldier" has been handled for decades as if it could explode at any moment. Now, the 95-minute film - which has circulated like 16-millimeter samizdat on college campuses for decades but has never been accessible to a wide audience - is about to get its first significant theatrical release in the United States, beginning on Friday at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. (Other bookings, including Chicago, Detroit, Hartford and Minneapolis, can be found at www.wintersoldierfilm.com.) Its distributors say...

But, as they gathered in Pittsburgh this past weekend, GOP leaders and campaign strategists couldn't hide the fact that they've got their political backs to the wall. Yes, there was lots of energy at the meeting, but it was the nervous energy of panicked politicians and operatives who know their luck is running out. Last week, Democrat Paul Hackett, a political newcomer and Iraqi combat veteran, came within 4,600 votes of winning...

    It seemed as if the campaign had never ended. There was John Kerry standing on a chair in a blue neighborhood of Atlanta, in the Democrat-friendly tavern Manuel's, speaking to 100 folks, many of them wearing Kerry-Edwards T shirts. The Massachusetts Senator insisted that he wasn't "one to lick wounds," but then he did: he noted that Bush had won with the smallest percentage margin ever for an incumbent and complained that the Republican team had six years to develop its electoral strategy while his had only eight months. And although he claimed that "my focus is not four years...

    Police impound Pacho the Donkey after motorcycle crash By The Associated Press (3/09/05 - BOGOTA, Colombia) — The suspect was a little long in the face after being arrested, but is braying for an early release. Police said Tuesday they detained the suspect, a donkey named Pacho, after a motorcycle crashed into it on a road in a northeastern city, with the motorcyclist suffering serious injuries. "When there are road accidents and serious injuries, the vehicles involved are always impounded," said Diana Rojas, spokeswoman for the Arauca city police department. "We had to impound both the donkey and the motorcycle...

    BOSTON— U.S. Sen. John Kerry, in some of his most pointed public comments yet about November's presidential election, invoked Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy on Monday as he criticized President Bush and decried reports of voter disenfranchisement on election day. Kerry, Bush's Democratic challenger, spoke at Boston's annual Martin Luther King Day Breakfast. He reiterated that he decided not to challenge the election results, but went on to say that "thousands of people were suppressed in the effort to vote." "Voting machines were distributed in uneven ways. In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, eleven hours to vote, while...

Kerry, who is showing a short film at the festival, was tailed by the press during her stay at Cannes but French newspapers reported that her staff had warned journalists off questions concerning her famous father. Her film entitled "The Last Full Measure" is being presented in the Short Film Corner section and describes the ravage...

    Three cheers for Fox News Channel's business ace Neil Cavuto. He's one of the few business journalists this year that has had the brains and backbone to expose the Democrats' hysterical distortions about the U.S. economy. If you missed Kerry's appearance on Cavuto's program this past week, the Massachusetts Democrat will no doubt be happy. Kerry tried to turn the show into one of his smug lectures, but Cavuto kept asking those pesky questions. Peskiest question of all: Why does Kerry keep attacking the 5.7 percent unemployment rate when Bill Clinton was bragging about a similar rate when he...

    BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Riding in on a borrowed Harley-Davidson, John Kerry appeared Tuesday on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" as rancor within his presidential campaign continued to boil. The Massachusetts senator, wearing a leather jacket, blue jeans and a denim shirt, rode the motorcycle onto the stage. The Democrat talked mostly politics during the interview with Leno, generating few laughs. He criticized George Bush's handling of the war in Iraq and told the president to "get off his high horse" and involve other countries in postwar efforts. Kerry also said the improving economy wouldn't be a major issue...

    We've all heard of Senateur John Le Kerry's little faux pas in Philly the other day: If Sen. John F. Kerry's presidential aspirations melt like a dollop of Cheez Whiz in the sun, the trouble may well be traced to an incident in South Philadelphia on Monday. There, the Massachusetts Democrat went to Pat's Steaks and ordered a cheesesteak -- with Swiss cheese. If that weren't bad enough, the candidate asked photographers not to take his picture while he ate the sandwich; shutters clicked anyway, and Kerry was caught nibbling daintily at his sandwich -- another serious faux pas. "It...

    PROVIDENCE -- Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, one of nine Democratic presidential aspirants, touted his health-care plan and raised about $75,000 in campaign money yesterday at a $1,000-per-person event at the home of former Providence Mayor Joseph R. Paolino Jr. Kerry, who unveiled his universal health-care proposal last week, said he intends to compare it to plans advanced by two of his opponents for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination -- former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and Missouri Rep. Dick Gephardt. "It is a real plan, it is affordable, it will save 163 million Americans money," Kerry said in an interview. "This...
