38. John Kerry needs to do a LOT
to convince me he is up for the task.

True, he sounds like a good candidate now. In fact, he sounds much BETTER than he did in 2004. But the fact of the matter is, he isn't a good campaigner. He let the SwiftBoaters have their way with him (even though a court now PROVED what they did was illegal). And, there is that infamous 'botched joke'. On the campaign trail, there is a 1000% increase of something like that being said, because he would be SPEAKING so much more. As ironic as it is, while he may be right on the issues I don't know that he is 'electable'.

If he won the nomination, I'd sell my soul and fight for him (after 2004 I quite frequently said he was an idiot). But he needs to prove to me he is up to the task.
