John Kerry in Daly City.....Paul Schroeder reports.

In one of the most unexpected and random events ever in my life, I managed to get into a John Kerry rally at Westmoor High School in Daly City....just blocks away
from the Van Lieu household. I didn't think I'd get to see him....let alone shake his hand! I just thought I could see a bunch of hoopla which is rare in this rather quiet Daly City neighborhood. I showed up early and stood in the general public line which led to the High School Auditorium. Once inside, I had a seat about 6 rows away from where he spoke. First the Mayor of Daly City spoke then.....Kerry came out and I couldn't believe how close I was to a man who is very close to becoming the most powerful man in the world. He said a few funny things about Daly City, such as, "Y'know,...the last time a man name John came here from Massachussetts, they named the city after him", Referring to John Daly. Then he went on to say, "I don't ask that you do the same for me.....I just ask for a few votes......and maybe a free dinner at Westlake Joes". He also said, "I come to bring clarity to the nations foggiest city.....and look it worked!" making a reference to the unusually hot weather. During his speech, he seemed to look straight at me a few times. Then,...when the speech ended, I made my way up front and extended my hand out towards him and he shook it. John Kerry is the last man to shake my right hand. How 'bout that shit?
