Kerry's Vision Not Clear, Analysts Say

Those analysts - they're pretty quick on the uptake, huh?

BOSTON — Sen. John F. Kerry had nearly all the ingredients to mount a successful challenge to President Bush: a tepid economy, an unpopular war plagued by setbacks, and a fiercely motivated Democratic base.

But, in the end, political analysts and party strategists agree that the Massachusetts senator was missing one key element: a boldly rendered portrayal of himself and his vision for the country.

Maybe not. The problem is that there was a boldly portrayed image of Kerry - and it was watercolor.

Problem was that Kerry had to hide his 20 year "image" of his, well, work, in the Senate.

Did not have much to paint there. So, I don't know why, but he tried to portray his image based on 4 months in VN about 35 years ago. Again, not much there, with more to hide.

Speaking of hide, man, did they salt away Ms. Tomato the last 2 weeks of the campaign or what?

Kerry had the same problem as Gore; he's a rich elitist snob who, when he speaks to audiences, sounds like he's lecturing third graders. Gore's other problem was his class warfare rhetoric. Kerry would say whatever the audience he was speaking to wanted to hear.
