Alec Baldwin was determined to attend the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION in Boston this week (begins26JUL04) so he could throw his weight behind presidential candidate John Kerry.

Baldwin is one of a number of celebrities at the Massachusetts bash, including Ben Affleck, Bono and John Cusack.

The passionate PEARL HARBOR star says, "Under the Republicans the infrastructure has broken down, the schools and the environment and health care are all suffering.

"All the Republicans know how to do is stimulate corporate profit and the Dow, and to make war. And they even screwed that up. They're useless. That's why I'm here"
