18. Well
first off, anytime you have a legislator running, there is that argument -- that they don't have 'executive experience'. But I don't think the American people are gonna buy the idea that Kerry is inexperienced, or that he won't know how to work with Congress to get things implemented. Just look at the entrance poll data from Iowa and see how Kerry scored on 'experience'.

Second, that bush:clinton thing makes no sense at all since bush1 was president at the time, he obviously had hands on experience. I don't get it.

And to go off on another tangent, and at the risk of sounding cynical, I think we need to remember what some campaigns seem to have forgotten -- that running a successful campaign is essentially a case of marketing, with the candidate being the product. Whatever your packaging, you must have a product that appeals to a very broad range of people to run a successful campaign.
