8. it's just weird
the media likes to talk about what a joke it is at the thought of Kerry running for President.

but when discussing serious issues from foreign policy to economics, and i mean real discussion with details, they talk to him.

i was just thinking at the weirdness of it. isn't this the type of discussion they should be having with those who think are major Presidential contenders, not the guy they consider to be a joke.

i like it when people know things and can really discuss them. i mean have actual conversations about it. not throw out some emptly one liners. to give credit, Bill Clinton is also able to do this and it's what has always impressed me about Clinton rather than the superficial stuff.

and it also got me thinking that it would be a good thing if people got to see Kerry like this more. there is no way they could view him as some kind of a joke. at the worst they will think he is lacking in joke telling . but they most likely would see him as a guy who gets the issues, knows what he is talking about and can fix the problems.
