21. Remember The Headlines When Kerry Called For Rumsfeld's Resignation?
Of course not. There weren't any until Dean copied him.

Think about it: a US Senator calls for the resignation of the Secretary of Defense. Don't you think that's newsworthy?

Throughout Kerry's stint as early front-runner, there was never a mention of a buzz or an examination of why he was in front. No magazine covers (of course). Every article talked about his "ambivalence" and "muddled" thinking. They painted him as the next Al Gore (not in a good way, either).

I find it amazing that Kerry's numbers are as good as they are. And I can't help but credit that to the quality of the candidate.
