Kerry picks up big endorsement

Good news for the Kerry campaign. They've managed to pick up a major international endorsement which will add legitimacy to their efforts to capture the White House:
The Palestinian Authority made its first open statement Monday expressing support for US democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
Yep...nothing like a thumbs up from the folks that brought Israel and others decades of car bombings, suicide attacks and good, old fashioned terrorism.

And on a related note:

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan - Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that terrorists are aiming to derail U.S. President George W. Bush’s chances at re-election through their attacks in Iraq.

“I consider the activities of terrorists in Iraq are not as much aimed at coalition forces but more personally against President Bush,” Putin said at a news conference after a regional summit in the Tajik capital, Dushanbe.

“International terrorism has as its goal to prevent the election of President Bush to a second term,” he said. “If they achieve that goal, then that will give international terrorism a new impulse and extra power.”
