Me: Y'know, it seems to me that if John Kerry were smart, he'd steal a page from Ronald Reagan's campaign playbook and pre-empt a major issue in the process. A one-liner that would get everybody's attention, like Reagan did when Carter was working hard to combat high interest rates and a struggling economy.
S (way ahead of me): "Do you feel safer than you did four years ago?"
Bingo. The very words.
Wonder if anybody in the campaign will be smart enough to catch that thought as it floats about in the ether.
