Kerrey Appears in New Clinton Ad
By Anne E. Kornblut
After watching her rival rack up high-profile endorsements, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton unleashed a popular surrogate of her own on Thursday, airing a new ad featuring former senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska -- two days ahead of his home state's caucuses.
In the ad, Kerrey says: "I support Hillary because I like her, trust her, and have confidence in her as commander in chief, as a leader to get our economy back on the right track and to strengthen our rural communities, expand access to affordable health care, and improve the quality of our schools. At the caucus this Saturday, give your support to Hillary. She'll never let you down."
Kerrey, a decorated Vietnam veteran and frequent maverick who now lives in New York and is president of the New School university, is still a powerful voice in Nebraska and could potentially help Clinton among veterans. He campaigned for Jim Webb during his 2006 Senate race in Virginia, and considered running for president himself.
