A very Kerry column
Slate magazine has posted their regular election-year feature where all their contributors reveal who they will vote for for president. This year it's Kerry in a landslide. He picks up the liberal majority of course, but also gets all the centrists and a few of the conservatives. One can't help notice that most of the votes are against Bush rather than for Kerry. There are many good comments I could quote, but I'll just state my agreement with this from Jacob Weisberg:
If elected, Kerry would probably be a mediocre, unloved president on the order of Jimmy Carter. And I won't have a second's regret about voting for him. Kerry's failings are minuscule when weighed against the massive damage to America's standing in the world, our economic future, and our civic institutions that would likely result from a second Bush term.
