    C-SPAN EXCLUSIVE

    John Kerry on C-SPAN 3

    As part a C-SPAN’s Distance Learning class, Sen. John Kerry
    (D-MA) will discuss a variety of topics. Along with student questions he will make remarks on the 2004 campaign, his possible 2008 presidential bid, the mid-term elections and his views on the state of American politics.

    I’ll try to get the audio.

  2. I’m watching it on the website (www.cspan.org) right now. If you have Real Player or (gag) Windows, you should be able to see it. CSPAN also allows you to download software. He’s looking good–seems like a neat program– Q and Q with students from at least 4 universities. Hope you can see it.

    Sadly I wasn’t able to watch, got biz problems I am trying to iron out… if you want to email me a recap I can post it!

  4. Pamela,
    Thanks for the heads up for Kerry’s Q&A on FT.com this Thursday. The coming election is filled with so many problems that have been created by the republican machine now in power that the lousy state of the economy often gets minimized. I know you have had some good posts here on this topic, but the media still is giving Bush some kind of pass here. I just hope Sen. Kerry tells it like it is, how on the verge of a meltdown I feel this country’s economy really is. Maybe it’s too frightening for many to really consider. Somehow it feels eerily like pre 1929, although I’ve only read about that. Kerry’s answers will mean so much.

  5. Here’s a link to it; you might want to watch it ASAP as CSpan’s archive doesn’t last long 🙁
