6. Unfortunately, much as I love Teddy, he has been so discredited by the
Edited on Tue Jun-07-05 02:56 PM by saracat
media, and mostly unfairly, that much of what he says is ignored.He is just that howling liberal who is "expected" to challenge the Repukes and it doesn't mean anything.I am afraid Kennedy might have watered down the impact of Kerry and DSM. If Kerry had gone first, and technically he did with his statements, there would have been an uproar. Sure the media would have attacked, but so what? There would have been coverage, now I am fearful there will be just a whimper! Unless Kerry does something HUGE, like call for impeachment. And I don't see that. But maybe he will think of something else But it has to be BIG , or they will bury it and then it is pointless.
