28. Remember when DU'ers were hoping Kerry would choose McCain
as his running mate? I think newbie DU'ers get enthralled with candidates who "just come out of the starting gate as the lead." It takes awhile to see what the "Front Runners" are all about...after the MSCorporate Media goes at them and if they survive. :-(

Education about candidates is more important TODAY than EVER!

My worry is that either Kerry dropped out because of Hillary or because of Biden and Dodd from CT...

I'd like to think he knows Gore will come in...but it's a long shot for that possibility and I think Kerry was looking at the current field and got the word from Hillary/Obama and BIG BILL... :-( Not to be cynical...but I am these days.
