WASHINGTON - Nobody's calling them the 2008 Democratic dream ticket, but Sen. John F. Kerry [related, bio] delivered the keynote speech at a fund-raiser for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton that raised a whopping $180,000.
``Tonight makes history,'' Kerry joked to the crowd, according to a friend who attended the event on Wednesday. ``It's the first time in four years (former Democratic National Committee chairman) Terry McAuliffe and I haven't been the ones asking you for money.''
Kerry, the defeated 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, threw his fund-raising weight behind the dinner at a private Georgetown home for the New York senator and former first lady, spending three hours schmoozing late into the evening.
The Massachusetts Democrat will also appear at a major fund-raising event for Clinton in Boston sometime in early May.
