Achilles Heel and Plastic Hair
An interesting piece on the Kerry Juggernaut suggests that his strength among 'anyone but Bush'-ites may harm him in the general election. As I've said before, hatred of Bush is likely to be the Democratic weakness this cycle. Hate rouses the base, but it generates its own negatives, while passionate rage and righteous fury overrule clear-headed tactics.
Let me say that again: Among voters who picked the candidate they wanted based on the issues, not the candidate they thought somebody else wanted, Kerry did not win the New Hampshire primary.
