Default Kennedy to Hit Campaign Trail for Kerry

Kennedy to Hit Campaign Trail for Kerry

Tue Sep 14, 6:30 PM ET

By LOLITA C. BALDOR, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), often credited with giving a boost to John Kerry (news - web sites)'s presidential campaign, is launching a seven-week election drive for his Massachusetts colleague that will pair fund raising and travel with a barrage of speeches condemning President Bush (news - web sites)'s policies.

Kennedy, D-Mass., will make two campaign stops in Pennsylvania on Friday, in addition to appearances around the country nearly every weekend as a surrogate for Kerry. While the Senate remains in session, Kennedy plans almost daily rebukes of Bush's policies, ranging from the war in Iraq (news - web sites) to health care and education.

Kennedy waged a similar war of words against Bush four years ago for Democrat Al Gore (news - web sites). But this time, his work for Kerry will be more active and involve much more travel, Kennedy's aides said.

They would not release a list of places where Kennedy is expected to campaign, but said the liberal Democrat will be in battleground states across all regions of the country.

Kennedy said he is intent on defeating Bush and putting Kerry in the White House, and will lay out the administration's "incompetence" in its domestic and foreign policies in his speeches.

He started Tuesday with a condemnation of Bush's efforts at solving the nation's health care crisis.

"George Bush (news - web sites) has had a lot to say about health care over the last few days, but nowhere has the Bush presidency been more devastating," said Kennedy, who will speak about health care in Harrisburg and Scranton on Friday.

Republicans, meanwhile, have rejoiced in the opportunity to link Kerry with his home state's liberal lion one of the politicians conservatives love to hate.

During the primary contests this year, Kennedy allowed Kerry to hire two of his key staffers, including Mary Beth Cahill, who is now Kerry's campaign manager. Kennedy later traveled to Iowa and New Hampshire to help energize crowds and rally the liberal base for Kerry.
Haha a fantastic move, good old uncle teddy. I wonder if he will save Kerry's campaign like he saved Mary Joe Kopechne's life?

Will Kennedy speak about that "Bridge" over troubled waters?

Or will Kennedy speak about that "Bridge too far", for Kerry?

Or Maybe Kennedy will go on a drunken rant like "ZOLMAZ" and lose
the election for kerry?

only time will tell.

God Bless America,
