And the dirt goeth...

It seems that the report about an alleged affair between John Kerry and an "intern" was much ado about nothing. Both Kerry and the girl as well as her family categorically deny everything. Newspapers in the UK ran wild with this one. Some people complained of a media "blackout", but I think that to the contrary it was "responsible" coverage. Not that Matt isn't responsible. But, I think that he would have been happy to have brought out to party shaking scandals all within a 15 year period.

Not that he has any particular interest in bringing out some dirt on anybody, especially the Dems.

Well, we are poised to see how Kerry, Edwards, and Dean do in Wisconsin. Kerry is already heavily favored, and now one of the issues that should be in the back of Dean and Edward's mind is, "How do I gain points and delegates in this race without doing damage to the party as a whole." I submit that they need only stick to the issues, and talk about why they have the "best" course of action versus saying that someone else is out for personal gain. Truth be told, Kerry, contrary to my predictions will get the Democratic nod. But, if he goes through a catfight within his own party, he will be weakened by the time he takes on the incumbent. I hope all concerned parties will remember this. I wonder who the running mate will be? Hmmmm.......
