Former Sen. Bob Kerrey‘s says if Don Imus asks him to appear on his new radio show, he will. In an op-ed in the NYDaily News Sunday, Kerrey concludes the candidates for president would be better off if they did too.
Kerrey writes about the 2004 campaign: “It would be one thing if going on Imus meant that a candidate had to disavow his own beliefs. It doesn’t — no more than appearing on Lou Dobbs means you want to deport illegal immigrants.
Kerrey continues: “Democratic candidates already made a similar mistake when, goaded by groups like MoveOn.org to dissociate themselves from Fox News, they pulled the plug on a party debate to be aired on the network in September. They had a chance to reach millions of people — but they blinked, and they blew it.”
