Kerry Ran On Empty

[Media Source*]

(Daily Kos) The man had no reason for running. He had no message beyond "I'm the most electable". Dean was running his anti-establishment campaign. Clark was weaving his sterling military service into domestic issues with his "New American Patriotism". Edwards had the best message of all, talking about the "Two Americas". Yet Kerry had nothing. And while his "most electable" drivel helped propel him into the nomination, it left him ill-prepared for the general campaign...

...campaign insiders will tell you that no one loved Kerry. No one had any sense of higher purpose. People who worked for Dean, Edwards and Clark all passionately loved their man. The campaigns stuck together.

Kos goes on to explain how many of the campaign workers had to sacrifice everything to work in the home states of their favorite candidates, all except John Kerry. Perhaps instead of running on "I'm the most electable" Kerry should have concentrated on building his base. Even Howard Dean had something to say (Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwhhh!!!!). Perhaps instead of running without vision Kerry should first develop an ideal besides "the other choice" if he hopes to succeed in 2008.

Despite his failed 2004 bid, Kerry seems to not have lost his ambition towards being President. As of this publishing, Kerry does not inspire very much passion in the blogosphere, (unlike his rival Hillary) something he potentially will need if he throws in his bid again for the White House.

What John Kerry needs is a "working vision," something pro-active instead of reactive like many of his fellow democratic colleagues have been. Perhaps doing so will inspire people to follow him. Perhaps not. But either way, if Kerry does not provide some road map as to where he wants to bring this country again, he will simply be running on empty. And that's right where he was before.
