Well, my guess is that we’ll see a Kerry/Edwards run.  Kerry’s too strong for Dean, and Edwards will be needed for the “Southern Strategy.” In any event, Kerry will want no part of Dean who has demonstrated himself to be far too loopy as a running mate. (Consider the impact of that statement; Too loopy for Kerry?) Edwards doing well in Carolina will reinforce this idea with me.

Dean for his part, came up last night on NightLine, with words to the effect that Iraq doesn’t matter to the voters. Which, of course is nowhere near accurate. The voters… Even the Democrats… Don’t like the strong anti-war stance Dean took.  They don’t like Kerry on the point, either, but at least Kerry has more going for him than anger. Not MUCH more, mind you.

Which leads us to a Bush Victory. Kerry has too much of a negative history, even among Democrats, to not be full of holes by next November. Since I like to be on the bleeding edge, let’s list a few I didn’t mention in my weekly long form, linked above;

Think of it, Gang….
The ‘party of the little guy’ coughs up John Forbes Kerry, someone of money, who married into MORE money in the form of the heir to the Heinz fortune. Someone whose only dealings with minorities is when he’s in need of another drink at the country club.  Someone who has never been a working man in his life. Someone who, when he pays taxes it’s nothing more than a number; it never really affects his life in any substantial way… taxes don’t even enter his world.

We’re talking about someone here who was one of only 12 senators who voted against funding our troops in Iraq, and who voted for at least seven major reductions in defense and military spending and then claimed he was supporting our troups, and that he knows how to defend America.

We’re talking about someone who voted repeatedly to slash the budgets of intelligence agencies by billions of dollars, and then on the night of 9/11 bitched loud and long about how our intel community failed us.

We’re talking about someone who now claims to be for balancing the budget and yet who is on record has having voted against a Balanced Budget Amendment at least five times.

In Kerry we have someone who claims to be for the little guy, someone who’s concerned about the tax burden on americans and yet, is on record as voting for the largest tax increase ever, and the death tax, and for a 50-percent increase in the gas tax.

Family values issues? Oh, yeah, there’s a lot here, too.

We’re talking about someone who voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion at least three times.. who was one of 14 Senators who voted against the Defense of Marriage Act… someone who voted against a parental notification requirement where minors’ abortions are concened, who voted against mandatory sentences for drug dealers.

This is what the ‘Little Guy” Democrats are placing all their hopes in? Oh, yeah, that’s gonna sell in middle America.
Bloody amazing.

By the way, did you guys notice Kerry’s plastic surgery on his face, and some apparently serious reconstructive dental work, as shown on Matt Drudge’s site yesterday?
