Bob Kerrey Interview Online

by Kyle Michaelis

An online video podcast called American Microphone has a new interview with former U.S. Senator and Nebraska Governor Bob Kerrey. Kerrey shares his insights about the political mindset of Nebraska and Midwestern voters, while also discussing the Bush Administration's failures in conducting the Iraq war and enacting the reforms suggested by the 9/11 Commission on which he served.

The nearly hour-long interview is being advertised on several political blogs nationwide. Though not particularly mind-blowing, Kerrey impresses - as usual - with his intelligence and outspokeness. It's great to see one of Nebraska's favorite sons continue to lead on the most pressing issues facing the nation. Surely, fellow progressives will also be interested in what the honorable Mr. Kerrey has to say leading up to the November 7th election.

Enjoy and, by all means, feel free to discuss.

Kerrey is an honorable and intelligent man with a good sense of humor and charisma to spare. His military service has surely helped to elevate him somewhat above the self-obsessed petty squabbling of so many other Baby Boomer pols (not that the man doesn't have an ego), and his impressive experience in so many diverse venues make his tale a fascinating one.

Here's hoping that Kerrey comes out of political retirement to add his voice to the next administration, as he is certaintly one of the few people I trust to find a workable solution to this foreign policy mess we find ourselves in. My dream ticket for '08? Obama-Kerrey.

...well, a man can dream, can't he?
