170. It's true a lot of us are not "good ole boys"
Because some of us are women and because, on the whole, many of us are issue oriented than average. As to "good ole boys", that is less true of the Kerry followers than of say Clinton followers. I know I am not a "professional promoter" and I don't think the other john Kerry group people are either. I find nothing fascist in any of the many threads in the Kerry group. (Kerry is very unlikely to attract fascists as supporters because of who he is and what he has done.)

I was one who questioned why you went to an informational thread that was talking about some work Kerry is doing to invigorate the party at the grassroots level to say "Not Kerry". YOU SOUGHT OUT A Kerry thread, not the other way around. Kerry's stated view that as former nominee, a Senator, and a public person he feels a responsibility to try to help the Democratic party is welcome and it doesn't (as many people mention in the article) mean he should get the nomination again. I take this at face value, while knowing that doing good in 2005 - 2006 helps in 2008.

How many 2008 possibilities have gone to Iowa? Even if Kerry were JUST concerned with 2008, why does he have less right to try? The primaries will determine the nominee.
