Jon Carroll, columnist for the SF Chronicle, made much the same point in a recent column. "Whoever the Democratic nominee is, he should thank Howard Dean for leading his party out of the darkness. "

I find it quite frightening that Electablog writes: "Kerry ... hasn't convinced enough people to go to war for him.". Why does the next president need to be a pursuader for going to war ?

Most people in Europe I talk to hope for a change at the helm in the US, but moreover a change of agenda.

re: "Kerry ... hasn't convinced enough people to go to war for him." I think that's just a turn of phrase, meaning that he hasn't found enough people willing to "fight" for a campaign win.

Honestly, Kerry hasn't reached out to people like me: moderate, quazi-independent voter, from the south. Edwards has and he's who I'll support. Becuase between Kerry and Bush, we're screwed.

Kerry is going after yellow-dog democrats instead of trying to get the people who would normally vote for Bush and sit in the middle. Because there are a lot of us, and he really doesn't seem interested.

re: "that's just a turn of phrase..." - you're right, of course. (silly me). I have to admit that it is worded slightly bad though.
