    Traveling with Presidential Candidate John Kerry

    I had an interesting experience earlier this month when I found myself unexpectedly traveling with John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry. Here's the story:

    Well considering the way our political system has been working of late, having a good (police) record almost guarantees oneÔÇÖs political success! IÔÇÖve been saying for years the best way to get elected is to first be arrested!

    Ain't THAT a sad comment of the state of the state of our nation (not to be redundant) ??

    Enjoyed article Jeff. Great shots too. Timing is everything eh?

    Read somewhere he rode a BMW (R1200C) before the DUC & HD. Any idea?

    Did your being a motorcyclist help gain access?

    Thumbs up Great Photo Resolution and lighting

    What type of camera did you use? Did Mr. Kerry show you his medals?

    Very cool. You got off easier then I did when I did sound for President Clinton when the Marine helicopter crashed in Orlando. I got very thoroughly searched and was not allowed any tools or cameras.

    Yup, I had my own "escort" as well. Kinda intimidating ain't it?

    That's a good report and a good photo. You both pull off the slightly-wind-messed hair well.

    I believe my post here was nonpartisan and apolitical. I simply reported on an unexpected encounter with John Kerry. I do not believe I made any political comment in the post.

    I would prefer that this thread stay apolitical.
