So I see that John Kerry Version 2.0 is ready for shipping, and now he's even anti-Deanier than before. Can't you just feel the excitement?
No? Me neither. And it's a damn shame. John Kerry, is smart, good looking, a genuine war hero with strong foreign affairs creds, has virtually unlimited funding available thanks to his zillionaire wife, and has been running for President since back when Dubya was still getting popped for DUI. Why is his campaign such a dead fish?
I don't know whether Kerry has been badly served by his revolving door campaign staff, but I do know that any candidate who has people like Rand Beers and Joseph Wilson falling into their laps and doesn't have them out there front and center every day explaining why George W. Bush is screwing the pooch on every conceivable front in the War on Terror is someone who, frankly, deserves to lose. Never before has so little been gotten out of so much.
And now he's going to spend more time and energy attacking Howard Dean instead of recognizing the reality that the primary is down to a two-person race and he needs to compete for the wild card spot instead of trying to claim the frontrunner spot. What a waste.Posted by Charles Kuffner on November 11, 2003 to The making of the President | TrackBack
