In this Kerry campaign pool report, someone blushes:
On Behalf Of Murray, ShailaghSure, it's a slight story, but at this point, we're thinking the Kerry people are already scripting a campaign ad around it: "JOHN KERRY: WAR HERO, SAVES STAFFER. Shouldn't we elect him president?"

Not to dwell on the misfortunes of others, but in case you missed it, Allison Dobson stumbled while walking down the plane stairs...and was rescued by John Kerry, who was standing at the bottom shaking hands. The senator swooped around to steady Allison, who appeared red faced, but reports that she is uninjured.
Of course, the response ad from "Tarmac Veterans for Truth" is also already being written. And it's not like Kerry did anything really important by rescuing Dobson. It's not like he hugged the daughter of a 9/11 victim. See, that's a reason to vote for someone. War hero? That's so July.
