2. Kerry brings his campaign to Seattle
Kerry brings his campaign to Seattle
SEATTLE - About 1,500 people braved a sodden spring day in Seattle Wednesday to hear Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry declare that the U.S. should be free from dependence on foreign oil.

Despite the rain, security guards wouldn't let people carry umbrellas to the event and they piled up at a security checkpoint at Pier 62.

Washington state residents are coping with record high gasoline prices and planned to pump up his campaign Wednesday by proposing solutions to the problem.

Kerry was joined by much of the state's Democratic delegation, including Sen. Maria Cantwell, Rep. Jim McDermott, Rep. Adam Smith, Rep. Adam Smith, and Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels.

Before introducing Kerry, Inslee and Cantwell invoked the image of John F. Kennedy.

"We're going to have a president, who will do for energy what John F. Kennedy did for space exploration," Inslee shouted.


Kerry's arrives on new campaign plane

After campaigning in Portland, Kerry touched down in Seattle Tuesday night on board his new Boeing 757 campaign plane, nicknamed Freedom Bird.

In brief remarks to reporters at Seattles Boeing Field, Kerry put the focus on jobs, declaring, We ought to be standing up and fighting for Boeing workers, because theyve been undercut by Airbus and the administration has never stood up and fought the way they ought to.

While the presumptive Democratic nominee did not react directly to new reports of increasing terror threats here in the U.S., he had a few words on terrorists trying to influence politics.

on the news (NWCN and CNN) they presented Ass-croft directly after Kerry spoke about how this country (will) be attacked by (terrorists) sometime this summer. The timing couldn't help but be noticed!
