Those people that are coming to the campaign offering help aren't doing it to jump on a winning bandwagon, they're offering to help because they see the beginnings of a leaky ship." Looks like a possibility of McCurry to the rescue????? Sen John Kerry is said to by several advance staffers to have been visibly upset at the reception he received at the VFW convention on Wednesday in Cincinnati. "He was upset after the speech, visibly upset when he was out of the piblic view," says a Kerry advisor, confirming the story. Kerry was greeted by polite applause in the large auditorium, with many VFW members sitting with their arms crossed and not applauding at all. A few members stood in the rear of the room with their backs turned to the dais.
