I have something to admit.
I just can’t get excited about the Kerry/Edwards ticket. If you read liberal blogs, this ticket is the second coming, and frankly, I just don’t see it.
I guess the contrast of Kerry to Edwards is what is ramping up the excitement- he is a dynamic speaker, and while Cheney will rip him apart factually in the debates, I am sure that Edwards will hold his own with his polished speaking style.
But that is it- I just can’t get excited about the ticket at all- it isthe most liberal ticket since Mondal/ferraro, and I have to chuckle when I see them make statements like this:
Introducing Edwards in Cleveland, the first city to get electricity, Kerry welcomed “a different kind of electricity called John Edwards.” The Massachusetts senator called his running mate a man with “passion, conviction and strength.”
“He represents the best of the hope of our country, the best of opportunity,” Kerry said.
Kerry also poked fun at himself as well as his running mate for something the two often are teased about.
“We’ve got better vision, better ideas, real plans. We’ve got a better sense of what’s happening to America – and we’ve got better hair,” Kerry said, laughing.
Set aside the hair quip, which is funny (more of that would make the Massachussetts cyborg seem almost human), but when you cut to the heart of the matter, there are NO new ideas in the Kerry campaign.
Go through his rhetoric and ‘ideas.’ It is the same melange of rejected liberal nonsense that every ten years or so they try to repackage and force feed us depsite our wishes. The only coherent message the Democrats have had for four years has been that they want to be at Bush in 2004. So much for the party of Pat Moynihan.
BTW- You want to know who would have been a great choice for Kerry- Sam Nunn.
