2. This is very very interesting
It puts into very elegant form what many hear have argued about Kos. The most serious thing is that it's likely not just Kerry. Kos will likely continue doing this. It's interesting that the analysis posits that Kerry's positions expand the party, Kos's will continually shrink it to get to the perfectly pure people they agree with.

(The example is interesting on another level. Both of Kerry's daughters at some point used gay marriage as an example of where they disagree on the issues with their dad. Both gave the same reason, "the sacriment of marriage", which is what Kerry himself said. (Now the 3 Kerrys could have orchestrated this - but it also rings true for his generation and background. That he insisted on equal rights keeps his consistent on other values.) Kos, however, looks at Kerry's 100% support of gay rights - and asserts that Kerry was for gay marriage and this is political - and unacceptable.)

(So he rejects Kerry on gay marriage, but it's ok Clark voted for Reagan and Nixon)
