John Kerry is throwing a self-congratulatory party/campaign fundraiser (not necessarily in that order) at Boston Symphony Hall, and the Massachusetts Senator requests the honour of your presents.
I’ll go ahead and take a wild guess that one of the traits celebrated on the evening of December 13th will be Kerry’s unshakable humility:
Kerry isn’t up for re-election for four years, but it’s never too early to raise some cash and pat himself on the back for nothing more than being the closest thing to a Kennedy remaining in the US Congress:
The state’s senior senator — recently ranked the nation’s richest with $2.7 million in his campaign coffers and an estimated net worth of $239 million — is asking fellow Democrats to open their wallets yet again after they dug deep during a hard-fought election year. His extravaganza at the Boston Symphony — where tickets range from $75 to $4,800 — could be a tough sell as the party’s rank-and-file struggles through another Christmas in a tough economy.
“For Democrats, there’s a bit of fatigue — people have been giving aggressively,” said Democratic consultant Scott M. Ferson, president of the Liberty Square Group. “But we need John Kerry now more than ever. He’s one of the few (Massachusetts) Democrats left in a leadership position.”
Kerry put up $85,000 in campaign cash to rent the 2,000-seat Boston Symphony, where Boston Pops maestro Keith Lockhart, singer James Taylor and actor-director Ben Affleck are expected to appear.
