15. I'd rather this than the IWR vote
and it also is forward looking as it addresses the question of Kerry 08. I think a more valid critisism of Ariana here is that the game of politics interests her far more than froeign policy fine points.

Also, in a way, this article does show the media problem. The framers of the campaign law created a very bad unitentional consequense of having the first convention. This will always hurt the out of power party, which has the choice of having a 2004 like situation of more weeks to ration ge funds over or to pick such a late date that there will be little time between the conventions which will hurt momentum - while when the second party ends they continue onto the road. Rather than dicuss this new problem and its inherent unfairness, every pundit there including some that (non- LW) people thought were neutral (Broder and Scheifer) ridiculed Kerry for trying to find a viable solution.
