29. As a Dean supporter
that does not mean that I demonize Kerry. I have never posted a negative thread againist him nor another candidate except Liebermann. I stay out of that fray.

I have always known that Kerry is an outstanding Liberal who should for the most part be very proud of his record and will vote for him should Dean not win the nomination. However, I am concerned that he may not be able to generate the vote due to being inside the beltway for a long period of time. This is not a slam but he from what I have seen on CSPAN and from his forums is that he does not answer questions directly and takes the "politician approach" to answering questions. Most Americans IMHO tune out when they hear this approach. That IMHO is why they like Dean and why they responded to McCain. They both answer the questions posed to directly. People love that.

Kerry supporters, please help get this message across if you are serious about getting him nominated. Right now IMHO most DEMS will tune him out and not be mobilized to vote for him in this pivotal 2004 election.
