re: While John Kerry was off debating who was and wasn't a hero in yesteryear's wars, he should have been saying: "It's the Supreme Court, stupid."I haven't set up my anon-o-email yet, and am a little lazy when it comes to that sort of thing... thus I cannot comment on certain blogs.
Most voters have either forgotten what the Supreme Court is or underestimate its importance in the grand scheme of things (How many know that Miranda is a Supreme Court decision?).
The presidential election is about convincing voters that 1) the candidate is a good guy, 2) the candidate is a leader, and 3) the candidate genuinely cares about the voter. Based on that calculus, Kerry was not a bad candidate, but he wasn't necessarily the best candidate (not to rehash that subject).
