115. Not a "foil", a "standard"...
Kerry was our candidate last time out. Like it or not, that makes him the standard by which others are measured. That can't be done without ever saying his name, making a comparison, or referring to him -- even obliquely. This was never meant to be an anti-Kerry thread, but your defensiveness and combativeness made it one, nevertheless. We need to find a way to talk to each other without this bitterness and recrimination, and not taking offense to every mention of Kerry's name in releation to another candidate would be a start.
