    Why doesn't his record mean anything to those who want to vote for him?

    Here's the linky for the Boston Herald, personally I think they are trying to regain some credibility for having their reporter work for Kerry and write articles on him at the same time:

    It certainly would be nice to hear some truth come out regarding Kerry however when the dems say "anyone but Bush" they mean it. Having a candidate that lies means nothing to them a la Clintons' behavior. My gut feelings tell me that they are now TOTALLY relying on the media to give them the spin they need to win. The GOP convention and the debates will only "mean" what the media decides that they will mean. Hell with the ads--the GOP would do much better by using the bucks to buy a major network or create one.

    My hope is that Kerry's normal behavior will rub the wrong reporter the wrong way soon. There are too many stories out there, one by Dave Barry, regarding his arrogance and expectation of special privileges. I doubt he'll be able to keep them at bay, eventually.

    You go girl ! I hope you're right but as it is now, the ONLY thing keeping Kerry afloat is the protection he receives from the media.

    I agree. Put the cards on the table so we can see what he's got. If he's got nothing to hide, he shouldn't mind.

    Thing is, a lot of his supporters (like me), don't necessarily think he has a great record. At all. He's just the least objectionable alternative to Bush that the DNP could produce, and for a lot of people, that's enough.

    Well that's certainly your right, but be careful what you wish for.
