Kerry telephones his millionth donor

NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Cathy Weigel probably never thought she'd hit a jackpot of sorts when she donated $50 to Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites)'s presidential campaign. Weigel turned out to be his 1 millionth donor, and that campaign milestone came with the promise of a telephone call from the candidate himself.

Weigel nervously awaited Kerry's call on Tuesday. But once they were connected, a broad smile crept across her face and calm set in as they discussed his effort to unseat President Bush (

"International security is a big thing, and we have trashed our reputation really bad," she told Kerry, who telephoned from his new campaign plane en route from Washington, D.C., to Portland, Ore. "That's important to me."

Weigel said Kerry asked her to attend his inauguration.

"If he wins, by God yes, I'm going," she said, before adding: "When he wins."

1. That's so cool
I'd like to get that phone call. I'd put in a plug for Clark if I had Kerry on the line ;)

2. just goes to show
What a good man he is. I'm sure chimpy would only call his millionth $1,000+ donor, which was probably Ken Lay or some other exec.

While both went to Yale, Kerry is definitely the only candidate with any class, not to mention a brain

3. I wonder if he felt he could talk "freely".
I'm just thinking, if I was Kerry, I would have a hell of a time not saying things like "Bush is a fuck-nut". I guess that's why I'll never be president.

8. Good PR
But where was his campaign manager when me and my fiance showed up at the airport looking to welcome him?

Sorry, don't know anything, move along....
