Jerusalem Post: Palestinian Authority Supports Kerry Palestinian officials are quietly pinning their hopes on Democratic candidate John Kerry winning the US presidential election. Former US Middle East envoy Denis Ross is likely to be reappointed should Kerry win the American elections, a Palestinian Authority source said. Ross has contacted with Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei and other Palestinian officials during recent visits to the region. He unofficially briefed the Palestinians on the potential new administration's Middle East plans, the source said. Palestinians expect Kerry's Middle East policy to be closer to that of former US president Bill Clinton.
