Senator Kerry is profiled by the WaPo (the first of many profiles). He is made out to be a complex and nuanced person, an alpha male who borders on being sentimental, etc. Maybe I’m jaded, but I find this sort of writing about presidential candidates prosaic in the extreme. There will be more profiles on the other eight candidates. Will they all prove to be equally complex and nuanced? I can’t wait to find out.
The New York Times Magazine runs this long piece on Howard Dean. I think Dean is much more interesting because he is less complex.
