Just curious, as none of the major figures in liberal punditry seem to care much for him.

While I’m sure there will be some fawning profiles in the New York Times or Washington Post eventually, I haven’t seen any yet. Is the hope in the Democratic aisles that people simply will hate Bush enough to plug their noses and vote for Kerry? Obviously there are those such as Lumpy who will do so, but I don’t think a whole campaign can be based on “Vote Kerry – He’s not Bush!”
