Kerry, Sliding Further

John Kerry today tried to "re-launch" his sinking presidential campaign with the unveiling of a plan for what he’d do with his first 100 days in the White House.

But then, in an attempted indirect slap at Howard Dean, he said to New Hampshire voters, "Don’t just send them a message; send them a president."

This was Jimmy Carter’s slogan back in 1976, which he used as a way of attacking and siphoning votes from George Wallace. Can’t Kerry come up with his own slogans? Borrowing from Jimmy Carter isn’t a very good sign.

Wasn’t Kerry in the Vietnam war or something? I seem to remember reading that somewhere. If his campaign people were smart,, they’d play up that angle.

Play up that angle? Heck, they mention it every chance they get. In fact, Kerry’s time in Vietnam was the cover story of the last issue of the Atlantic. The problem is that it’s not doing him a bit of good among Democratic regulars.
