22. Right
Isn't this the left's argument. Why should Kerry worry about the Right? He should lean back on our Liberal base and challenge the Right on the issues that he is in agreement with the Left on, and then some. That would energize our party and put the conservatives on their heels. Of course you can argue whether Kerry is the right one to carry this message, but if he is in fact percieved as centrist he could do the 'Nixon goes to China' thing and influence the moderate Democratic party to left of center and still appear pragmatic enough for the moderates.

F*** the republicans.
