John Kerry on Bill O'Reilly's 'No Spin Zone'

John Kerry was on Bill O'Reilly's "No Spin Zone" last night. Considering the "spin" that O'Reilly is famous for, it was a good interview. Last month O"Reilly noted in the Boston Herald that he sees Kerry as a viable candidate in '08.

Fox News notes that the "partial transcript from "The O'Reilly Factor," June 29, 2006, that has been edited for clarity"...

BILL O'REILLY, HOST: In the "Personal Story" segment tonight, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts has been serving on the Hill for 22 years. He came within a whisper, as you know, of becoming president. And I think he's going to run again.

During the last campaign, however, the senator would not talk with us. But now, things have changed. I spoke with him yesterday.


O'REILLY: All right, before we start the interview, I wish we could have done this in the campaign. You know, we kept waiting for you to come and...

KERRY: We should have done it. We should have.

O'REILLY: You think so?

KERRY: I would love to have.

O'REILLY: In hindsight, you should have.

KERRY: No, I don't know why we didn't, but we should have.

O'REILLY: OK, because some people said well, he doesn't like you, he doesn't think you're going to get a fair shot on the program.

KERRY: I've always had a fair shot.

O'REILLY: The New York Times, we have some Republicans calling for action against them. Maybe the attorney general will start an investigation into the leaks. What do you think?
