It gave me pause to hear that John Kerry will not be seeking the presidency in 2008. His defeat in 2004 became the inspiration for this blog. He was a Vietnam vet, swiftboated, smeared, and soundly caricatured as an elite, New England liberal. It must sting like hell to loose to a guy like George Bush. Since then, Kerry, having done absolutely nothing from the executive branch, has proven himself to have been the far superior choice. Yet, all things must pass. And all future Kerry e-mails will now be flagged as spam.
