John Kerry’s endorsement of Obama is based on one of three things:
- Conviction he’s the best.
- Anticipation he’ll get the nomination, and thus reward Kerry for his endorsement.
- Revenge against some offence the Clinton’s committed (and there are many Democrats who have grievances against them.)
It would be foolish to assume that Hillary is down and out. Underestimating the Clintons’ ability to a) come back and b) take revenge on their enemies is unwise. Just ask James McDougal. Kerry and others may find themselves in the same boat if they are wrong.
As the Chinese told me many years ago, "I hope you are right."
