This is an amazing video of one of the most touching and authentic moments in politics ever. Lawrence O’Donnell devoted a large portion of his show to Kerrey last night after his surprise announcement that he will run for his old senate seat in Nebraska currently held by Ben Nelson, greatly increasing the odds that Democrats will retain control of the senate. Kerrey was Governor of Nebraska from 1983 to 1987 and a United States Senator from 1989 to 2001. A veteran of the Vietnam war, he was awarded a Medal of Honor for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a SEAL team leader.” LINK
Welcome back, Bob Kerrey. Your country needs you again.
