Blog4kerry - He's the Real Deal

A quote from former Senator Warren B. Rudman, Republican of New Hampshire sums it up, "I think he's a moderate Democrat — very liberal on social policy and reasonably conservative on foreign policy and defense matters."

This is a great article. This really highlights why I believe John Kerry is the candidate to lead America after the 2004 election. The current administration has ripped this country into two bitter camps. Bush is the Great Divider.

But by the same contrast, we have to put our impulses for revenge away if we want to reach Middle America. We must paint an optimistic vision of America that contrast with the Bush/Rove record. However, if the Democratic vision is not hopeful, not only would our chances of winning in November be diminished, but also the new Democratic President would never be able to heal the nation. I firmly believe John Kerry has the leadership and temperament to not just lead, but also help heal the great divisions of this country.

I know there are always bitter people out there, but it really floored me when I was leafleting last weekend and an older man yelled something about the Senator “looking French and being a communist.” I reminded him he was referring to a highly decorated Vietnam veteran in that fashion. Amazing how quickly even the most illogical Bushie will sulk off with that retort…
