30. If you think he is a decent Senator, why criticize his integrity
He lost - it is fair to say you want a stronger candidate. There is a real question as to whether there was one last year. I think Kerry was the strongest of the group. I'm not really sure what it means to be more open - but that's subjective and it's fair for you to have an opinion.

It is not fair to say "more honest" as Kerry was painfully honest. There was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING he said that was a lie. He really is an extremely honest politician who clearly values his integrity. During last year's campaign, the Republicans slimed his service, his personality, his hobbies, his wife and his marriage, and his career - all using lies. Although he has been an elected official for 22 years, even the local paper that hates him hasn't found a real scandal to hit him with although they've looked for 22 years.

It is fair for you to have the opinion that he was a poor candidate, but it is wrong for a Democrat to cavalierly attack Kerry's character, especially after the Republicans spent millions last year not just to defeat him but to destroy him. He deserves respect for who he is and what he has done with his life. I hope he stays in public life because he is one of the best people we have.
