4. Kerry's daughters find life turning into a balancing act
Kerry's daughters find life turning into a balancing act

By James Rainey Los Angeles Times

They say teach your children well. And so the father schooled his daughters: Be your own person. Pursue your passion. Don't stand in someone else's shadow.
The two girls learned. They grew into women and, by all accounts, they thrived. But just as they seemed poised to blossom in their own careers, something happened. The teacher, himself, cast the shadow. And it was wide.
Their short life stories would suggest that Alexandra and Vanessa Kerry will figure this one out: how to campaign to make their father president of the United States and still proceed with their own lives.
That's become the day-by-day challenge for the two driven young women whose dad is another high achiever, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.
The style and verve that the two young women -- teamed with the steadfast support of their father's old Vietnam War buddies -- brought to the living rooms and meeting halls of Iowa lent a human touch that helped revive Kerry's seemingly moribund campaign early this year.
