I get what you are saying about the empty promises, but don't see how Bush is anymore realistic. I think the important thing is Kerry would try
to build a coalition. So he says he definitely can. That is what he has to say in the politicing game. Who would vote for a candidate who said, "well, I'd like to do all this good stuff...but it wouldn't help. Nothing can make the situation better." You know what I mean?
Unfortunately, the game doesn't allow candidates to be candid
. Look at Howard Dean. Every time he expressed some real emotions, people said he was unpresidential and unelectable. I wish there was another viable candidate too. But to say Kerry is evil....that needs some explaination I think.
The truth is saying Bush is evil is kind of a stretch...if he was ****ing up our country intentionally, like sitting on his little ranch, rubbing his hands together and laughing maniacally. But the scarier thing is, Bush actually believes
he is doing the right things. That just makes him stupid and wrong.
I live in the land of nowhere, South Dakota and I think we only get a half of an electoral vote (J/K I know we have three. One for each glorious Democratic senator/rep). I will be voting for Kerry.
