Is Blair about to endorse Kerry?

David Williamson of The Western Mail writes:

STEVE MORGAN, the Welshman at the heart of the John Kerry presidential campaign, said yesterday Peter Hain’s upcoming visit with senior Democrats suggests that the Government is now expecting President Bush to lose the November election. He said several potential scandals were looming over the Bush administration which have prompted Downing Street to build bridges with the Democrats…Mr Hain’s meeting with Democrat leaders, who are expected to include House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Tom Daschle, follows a visit by junior minister Gareth Thomas. Around 10 Labour MPs are expected to attend the convention in Boston. A spokesman for Mr Hain denied that the trip was an endorsement of Mr Kerry. Instead, he said it is to study new election-winning techniques and to exchange ideas.

So who is Peter Hain who ask? “Leader of the House of Commons, Lord Privy Seal and Secretary of State for Wales”. Of course, my question is how much reliability can we place in David Williamson of The Western Mail? But if I were Mr. Blair, I certainly would be hedging my bets.
