Friday’s big Boston Herald page-one photograph of Sen. John Kerry wiping a tear from his eye on the campaign trail yesterday was reminiscent of the act former President Clinton put on several years ago. Clinton was walking along briskly out of a funeral parlor after attending a public official’s wake when he saw a TV camera start to focus on him. His pace slowed, a sorrowful look descended on him and his left index finger rose to the occasion and wiped his left eye. Rush Limbaugh caught this footage and played it several times for his then television show.

What an act!
