Huffington/Trippi launch petition on net - asking Kerry to inspire more
voters.

Together, they have launched an Internet petition calling on Democratic candidate John Kerry to inspire more voters by bringing "hope and soul" back to political discourse.

"Instead of adopting the familiar -- and failed -- Republican-lite swing voter strategy, you can reach out to and inspire the 50 percent of eligible voters who have given up on voting," reads the petition on Huffington's Web site. "If you do, you will win not in a toss-up but a landslide."


And...

"I realized that an attack on Bush, however justified, would not take Kerry over the finish line," Huffington said. "We want to be inspired, we want to hear big things. People are asking him to be all that he can be."

I like this line best of all.

"I tell my Green Party and Naderite friends that when the house is on fire, it's not time to talk about remodeling," Huffington said. "You put the fire out first."

Here's hoping we can put out the fire folks... and of course light one under Mr. Kerry in the process ;)

the last 20 years of sound-byte-poll-media-money-corporatism-whatever politics ... people seem to be afraid to be 'real' or 'relaxed'
