So what did Dem presidential contender John Kerry take out of his jacket as he approached the stage (with his back to the auditorium’s audience)? […] What did Kerry place on the podium?
Video replays of the Kerry maneuver played all weekend long on the internet.
(A tight zoom analysis of the Boston.Com feed shows Kerry pulling a mysterious item his jacket (14 seconds into video, after commerical). Kerry appears to unfold some sort of paper seconds later, at his podium.)
