What on earth are the Kerry people thinking? Can Al Sharpton, front and center, be next?

Yup, Jesse Jackson...That'll make a big impression on the undecideds.

Jesse Jackson joins Kerry campaign

WASHINGTON - Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson joined the campaign of Sen. John Kerry on Wednesday as a poll showed support for the presidential candidate slipping among black Americans, a critical Democratic constituency.

The Pew Research Center said Tuesday its latest poll showed 73 percent of blacks supporting Kerry compared with 12 percent supporting President Bush. In 2000, Al Gore won 90 percent of the black vote.

Democratic groups have aired campaign ads criticizing Republican efforts to woo black voters.

The Kerry campaign said Jackson, who will serve as a senior adviser, will travel to battleground states to energize Democratic support for Kerry and running mate John Edwards.
