38. :) I love the trite excuses. Admit it, it would be an unnecessary risk
for Kerry. He does have every right to refuse the debate but, since HE'S the one who iniated the dialogue, we have every right to ask why he's changed his mind. I don't have a problem with Kerry refusing as a campaign strategy, but don't even try to make it any more than that.
