26. Ive never understood it honestly
really. We got so many anti free traders here on the boards and they have issues with Kerry because of this but yet they think it would be the worst thing ever if Gep would be VP. Gephardt also opposed "welfare reform", he was a cofounder of the DLC yes but hes quite liberal socially and economically, economically IMO more than Kerry. Gephardt as VP wouldnt kill me, it might even has a person who is big on labor issues bring a smile.
