Kerry Emerges: Bush v. Dukakis, II

Howard Kurtz suggests that Senator Kerry of Massachusetts may well emerge as the Democratic frontrunner in the media’s review of the Democratic candidates which he likens to the forthcoming ABC reality show "Are You Hot?" Gotta give Kurtz points for honesty. Kurtz notes that Kerry’s has a number of assets: he’s a Vietnam hero, he’s got experience as a Senator and in the foreign policy arena, he’s got a wealthy wife, and he’s got "good hair." But these may not help him with what even Kurtz recognizes to be his big drawbacks: he’s a liberal from Massachusetts. Bush v. Dukakis, part II. The article is worth a read because it shows the angst in the Democratic party: Kerry talks about opposing the President, but then doesn’t do it on the war vote (despite the fact that he voted against the Gulf War in 1991).
