WASHINGTON - John Kerry (news - web sites), Bob Kerrey. It's easy to get confused. At least that's how the Kerry campaign is explaining claims that Kerry - the Democratic presidential candidate - served as vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
Oops. Make that Bob Kerrey - the former Democratic senator from Nebraska who did serve as the panel's vice chairman.
