Kerry's January Agenda
Upon return to Washington Kerry has announced to supporters his intentions to introduce new legislature in congress. His first priorities will be fighting for children's health care, a bill to increase Americas troop strength by 40,000 troops, and legislature for federal voting standards.
Additionally, Kerry seems determined to play a role in rebuilding his party's grassroots:
From Newsweek: Kerry has become deeply fascinated by the task of rebuilding the Democratic Party from the grass roots up, say his advisers. He has hired a street wise political organizer from Boston named John Giesser, the deputy to 2004 grass-roots organizer Michael Whouley, to run his political action committee.
Whether Kerry can pull off his ambitious agenda and be the Democratic leader of opposition to the Bush administration remains to be seen, but it won't be for lack of trying.
