24. Good tactic.
It's no secret that there is a rift in the Republican party right now and it is growing.
It would be foolish for Kerry to not take advantage of it.
The libertartian wing despises the Patriot Act; there is no reason we can't nudge them into the Democratic party or at least away from the GOP.
