John Kerry

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.

He can't touch the Ketchup money. Although I'm pretty sure she could donate to PACs and stuff, but FEC scrutiny would be pretty tight. She can't even give him money, because there is no current "pattern of giving".

He's a multimillionare in his own right, however. He's got tens of millions. Just not hundreds of millions. :)

You know, IMNSHO, Bush-Kerry is a race that Kerry would lose, but it would be a real race worth watching to the end; Bush-Gephardt would be even closer and I think Gephardt might even win; Bush-Dean will be a romp with the Republicans having major gains in the House, Senate and state races as a result. Why is such a candidate at the front of the race for the party nomination? The more I read about Dean and hear his speeches, the surer I am that he is the driving off a cliff while making out in the back seat.
