Learning from Richard Lugar's mistakes -- who says politicians aren't educable?

Bob Kerrey has purchased a home in Nebraska.

The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate who registered to vote in Nebraska a day before he filed for office said Wednesday that he purchased a home in central Omaha at 415 N. 61st St. It's not far from the Dundee-Memorial Park-area home he had when last he lived in Nebraska.

Kerrey has lived for the past 12 years in New York City. He returned home in February and filed to run for office, listing a guest house of a supporter as his official residence.

Of course, that doesn't make him a Nebraskan any more than Lugar was still a Hoosier. But if he gets elected and starts going "home" periodically for the bean dinners (which Lugar did not do), it might at least make some of the lesser political lights in the state feel better.
