Kerry makes things messy. He believes, but he's not open about what he believes. I don't think he's really in contact with the people he claims to support. He's just as priviledged, just as ambitious as Bush, he's simply able to see more sides of the issues than Mr. Bush is. And I say this, of course, without really knowing it is true because I don't KNOW Mr. Kerry personally.
And while I value seeing more than one side to the issue there's a certain amount of analysis paralysis too..the sense that he sees too many issues to be able to act effectively.
I don't think that Mr. Kerry lacks either courage or conviction. I do think that he lacks *timing*..the ability to know *when* to speak and act in order to advance his cause. That may cost him the election, I don't know. I do know I'm voting for him.
Right now, it's not even a question of picking the 'right' man for the job. It's vital that we don't pick the wrong one-again.
