The Kerry Interview

Some highlights from my pre-tape interview with Sen. John Kerry (D-MA):

** He is highly skeptical of raising taxes on carried interest for hedge funds or private equity funds.

** He wants a more rapid broadband build-out. But he agrees that the broadband providers ought to get a good rate of return on their capital. This suggests he’s not in favor of net-neutrality.

** He is somewhat gloomy on the economy.

** He’s not ready to endorse any of the Democrats running for president.
