Eisenhower's Son Endorses Kerry

I'm a little late on this. You'll have to forgive me, I'm stuck in the Polish mountains, and this was the first chance I had to get to the internet cafe to post. The news in my opinion, is quite big. Dwight Eisenhower's son has endorsed Kerry. That's Ron Jr., and Dwight's son now who have seen the light. No children of Democratic presidents have switched sides. Here's his article, in The Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News:
Another View:
Why I will vote for John Kerry for President

After the Republicans flaunted Zell Miller like a prom date's panties, the Democrats would do well to point out all the Republicans who have switched sides. Remember Jim Jeffords? There are also rumors that Senator Lincoln Chafee wants to switch as well. The Democrats would also do well to point out that the South is no where near as Republican as popular theory suggests. The Dems are set to win four of the five seats they're giving up in the South. Bush is looking weak in North Carolina. With Edwards on the ticket, Kerry just might have a chance there, but the priority must be to keep West Virginia. Anybody else out there think we can do it?

And way up north, the Dems will almost certainly pick up a seat in "Republican Alaska."

Perhaps the South is (and other very "Republican" regions are) finally realizing that it's not only determination, but determination to do the right thing in Iraq, with the Economy, with Health Care and with Education that will be best for the country. Determined is fine, but although W. is very determined, and he is also very, very wrong.

Thanks for your comment Laura. I hope you come back.

I'm afraid you're right on all counts.

1. Perhaps the Iconoclast wanted attention, and yes, I gave it to them. Did you follow the link to the endorsement though? Damn good argument for why we should elect Kerry. The Left's position is what this blog is about, so you better believe attention is what I'll give them.

2. You're right. Zel is crazy. Please try telling that to my buddy Red.

3. "whatevah"-- Yes, such vitriol is bound to arouse apathy. There's too much of it. That's why I try to attack the politics, not the politicians. These things are important though. I hope, even if you don't agree with me, you'll still vote on Nov. 2.
