Now that the heavy lifting has subsided, it's Kerry's turn for a photo-op
Senator John Kerry is heading from Massachusetts to Louisiana with a planeload of supplies for Hurricane Katrina victims. Kerry left Logan Airport today on a U-P-S cargo plane full of supplies donated by state businesses. They include five-thousand bottles of baby formula from Children's Hospital, five-thousand pairs of sneakers from New Balance and cleaning supplies from the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans. The 2004 Democratic presidential nominee would not directly criticize the Bush administration for its relief efforts, but said he has warned about underfunding at the Homeland Security Department. He also said it's "not rocket science" to suggest that the country should prepare for future hurricanes by pre-positioning supplies so that they can be quickly moved into an area after a storm.
John, good points, but where have you been for the last 2 weeks?
