Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns


Dan Balz writes the WaPo storty on the Wisconsin outcome. The short of it is this: This race isn’t over yet. Edward’s rise is in part due (first) to the fact that Kerry is a bore and his comprehensive and excessive attack on Bush’s foreign policy is too extreme (and reminding people that he is a Vietnam vet with medals that he didn’t actually throw away, and that Bush was only in the National Guard only goes so far when Bush is Commander-in-Chief during war) and (second) that Edwards’ emphasis on good old-fashioned class warfare and protectionism is selling and (three) Edwards is a much more attractive and well-spoken human being than Kerry. Edwards seems normal. I’ll try to focus on this later, but it seems to me now that Edwards can at least damage Kerry, and possibly even win. This is especially true if Dean endorses him. If Dean wants to do something very good for his Party, he ought to do that. Then it would become a race down to the wire and I am betting that the longer it goes the more Kerry will drop. Kerry is like a bad love affair, the more you know him, the less you like him. Good for Edwards. Dean is supposed to hold a news conference this afternoon.

Nooooooo. I don’t want Edwards.

Actually, I think Bush will win against either Kerry or Edwards; however, Edwards would be more difficult.

It’s still the great irony of this election that so many Dems have settled on Kerry for his "electability" yet the more people find out about him, the less they like him (and it’s hard to find very many people even in his own state who claim REALLY to LIKE him). At some point, one does begin to wonder about the "electability" of a guy nobody really likes.

Kevin, Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Don’t tell anyone until early August of 2004.
