4. Full quote.

NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli reports that Kerry says Obama "has an ability to help us bridge the divide in religious extremism, to maybe even give power to moderate Islam." The reporter asks him why he'd say that, "What gives him credibility on that score." Kerry answers immmediately: "Because he's African American. Because he's a black man."

More Kerry: "It would be such an affirmation of who we say we are as a people if we can elect an African American president, young leader who is obviously a visionary and got an ability to inspire people. It will give us an ability to talk to those countries, to in some cases go around their dictator leaders to the people and inspire the people in ways that we cant otherwise."
