45. I also suggested they could alternate days b/t other popular DEMS:
Edited on Mon Apr-11-05 06:14 PM by Dr Fate
Kerry on Monday, Hillary on Tuesday, Dean on Friday, etc.

Until I'm shown it cant be done, (And shown with proof or at least somthing other than intuition), I'll maintain that we can do it.

I still think it would be a good plan.

Kerry could go on one of those Debate shows once or twice a week. Surely they would have him on, if for no other reason than to ask him tricky questions-that's the rub- DEMS would need to learn how to better handle those guys- but that's not the same as saying they cant get on at all.

I think we could at least request the interviews- if they are denied, then we have a good case to call them "biased" whenever we do get on shows.

I find it hard to believe that the media can really keep Kerry, Dean, Hilary etc off of their TV shows forvever-and to keep them from mentioning certain things once they are on- but if we just sit back, then I guess it could happen.
