85. That is why Kerry had no money in December
and risked his home - his only real asset - to get money for his canpaign. If his campaign failed, he would likely have had to leave the Senate to earn enough money to pay it off. Teresa would have been prevented from paying it off because that would have been considered an illegal contribution.

The establishment didn't want Kerry. Clinton, the ultimate DLCer, told a NY magazine in that time frame that the only Democratic stars were Hillary and Clark. Many Clinton people flocked to Clark. You could as easily make the case that first Gore (until he said he wouldn't run), then Lieberman, then Clark as being favored by the known Dlcers. Until Kerry won Iowa, the party gave him any favors. Other than the Rassman story - which was the type of event the media loves, Kerry got good press only after winning Iowa.
