Looking for a Democratic optimist?

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 9:09 PM

U.S. Rep. Marion Berry is not your man. Ron Breeding of KUAR interviews.

Comprehensive health care legislation is dead. Might others follow Vic Snyder in retiring? Anything could happen he said. Asked if he was "for sure" running for re-election, he said, "That's my intention at this time." When Breeding said that didn't sound like an unqualified answer, Berry said, "Nothing is certain in this world except death and I hope I don't have  to face that anytime soon. But beyond that you know I'm not going to make an absolute ... I'm 67 years old. Who knows what's coming to me before the sun comes down this afternoon."
