122. John Kerry
Edited on Mon Jun-07-04 09:49 AM by RobinA
Kerry was always my first choice as a Dem candidate once it became clear who the candidates were going to be. He may even be my first choice of all Dems who were viable to run for Pres. I have no problem with his adopting positions I don't necessarily agree with, because any candidate who agrees with me 100% is not going to get elected.

I do not particularly like the campaign he has run so far. It's Gore all over again. Gore was another guy whom I liked a lot. But they are both too damn mealy-mouthed. They talk mush. I'm not talking about them going out and saying "My opponent is a goddamn idiot." I'm talking about the way they articulate their positions. They won't take a solid stance on anything. Why can't any of our guys ever take a stand? These are intelligent men, but they sound like a parody of politics-speak. When they speak, a cloud of murk surrounds them that makes me crazy.

As far as what will happen if he is elected..... It is iffy. At times I'm tempted to think we'd be better in the long run if Bush gets reelected. I've said for a long time that the only cure for Bush is a resounding, complete, disaster of a magnitude that will cause the electorate to put a stake through this cabal's heart once and for all. At this point I go back and forth between thinking that our only salvation is such a disaster and the belief that we cannot walk that fine line, because we risk irreversible catastrophe. Don't know.
