Evidence that John Kerry also knows what time it is

From CNN:

Kerry and Schwarzenegger Give Props in California

2004 Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry makes a swing through California today to campaign against Proposition 75, a measure on the November 2005 special election ballot that would limit the use of employee union dues for political activity.

Kerry will announce his opposition to "paycheck protection" measure at a Los Angeles rally with local firefighters, teachers and nurses. The event will be held at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a proposition-related event of his own today, kicking off a signature drive drive to add the so-called "Jessica's Law," a new anti-sex offender initiative, to the fall ballot. That event will be held in Burbank at 1 p.m. ET.

Let's see. In the last few weeks our John has been in Iowa, Minnesota, and now Calif. He does get around, doesn't he.

Here's a link to a story on the Minnesota visit:
Kerry, Ed Koch stump in St. Paul race Updated: 10/10/2005 08:08:14 PM

ST. PAUL (AP) - It was political payback time in St. Paul this morning.

A year after St. Paul's Democratic mayor endorsed Republican President Bush for reelection, the president's 2004 rival came to campaign against the Mayor.

Democratic Senator John Kerry promoted former St. Paul city councilman Chris Coleman in his race against incumbent Mayor Randy Kelly.

Kerry made no mention of Kelly's Bush endorsement during a speech at Macalester College. But he said Coleman is a better fit for Minnesota's capital city.

Coleman urged supporters to get out to vote as the campaign moves into its final month.

Meanwhile, former New York City mayor Ed Koch was also in town.

And in Iowa (Yeah, yeah, I know. But ome of us think it's a GOOD thing. Nuthin' wrong with keeping your options open for 2008 on your way to 2006. But I digress...)

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is urging Democratic activists to use next year's midterm election to reshape the national debate on values.

Kerry says he nearly accomplished just that as the Democratic presidential nominee last year and is eager for the debate.

Kerry is in Iowa today for the second time since losing the presidential election. He is visiting Des Moines, Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, raising money for two networks aimed at electing women to office.

Kerry says the midterm elections next year give the Democrats an opportunity to shape a national message and begin laying the groundwork for the 2008 presidential election.Kerry says there is deep unrest among Americans and the Republicans have not addressed it.

Kerry says he is leaving his options open about a possible candidacy in 2008
