Kerry: A Good Sport in Defeat

From CQ's Midday Update:

There's no more painful place to be for a losing presidential candidate than the inauguration of his rival. But Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., appeared to be in good spirits today as President Bush took the oath of office for a second time.When the crowds spotted Kerry as he emerged from the Capitol onto the stage, a chorus of boos and jeers rang out -- punctuated by a scattered cheer or two. Kerry grinned, then paced along the edge of the stage, leaning over to chat with a group of high school students from Hattiesburg, Miss., who had the best seats of the entire assembled hordes. "Who'd you vote for?" he called out. "We're too young to vote," they called back. "We're going to convert all these kids for the future," Kerry told reporters.
I'm sure the assembled masses in DC are happy to know that a bunch of high school students from Mississippi had the best seats in the house. Clearly, that was a politically good use of prime real estate. Looks like the only political upswing from that placement choice was some nice quotes for Kerry. Way to go, Shrub.
