Poor John Kerry! You have to feel sorry for him these days stumbling around the political landscape trying to make a dent in President Bush’s popularity as he attempts to impress Democratic delegates to next year’s national convention at which they will choose the man or woman they want to oppose the President in the 2004 election —not an inviting prospect for any Democrat.

Kerry of course will have the Boston Globe in his corner as was obvious from the big page one play the newspaper gave him this morning on his speech yesterday in Peterborough, New Hampshire echoing the anti-war crowd’s call for a change at the helm of the U.S. givernment Democrats hope the Iraq desert war drags out and evolves into another Vietnam to enhance their prospects at the ballot box next year.
