Salon: The Virtual John Kerry

Not exactly the most flattering piece, but this Salon article has some interesting tidbits on John Kerry’s fundraising prowess, his 3 million+ email list, and his role in the ’06 elections. While it also includes comments from a few detractors (who curiously didn’t want to be identified), it’s still an interesting read about a possible ’08 run as well.

    I read the four editor-selected responses, all negative, so I wonder if there anything more positive.

    I find fault with their depiction of a more muscular Kerry on issues, as if it isn’t the same Kerry all these years, except when trying to get elected in that atmosphere of war, fear and consultants.

    People want Obama, and dare to dream, but will the press allow that dream to last long?

    How do we convince people that there is a different Kerry, and a same Kerry they didn’t see, more vigorously himself, having learned lessons.

    Those wonderful speeches, like Dissent, delivered with passion, were his own. People need to know that.

    I do believe it will turn around. In the meantime, send the doubters here, there’s enough Kerry posts over the past year and hal to fill folks in!
