Curbed Kerry Enthusiasm

The Washington Post today mildly notes that lefties are throwing their “Take Back America” conference in D.C., and once again, we learn they’re not wild about Kerry, they just hate Bush:

“The biggest applause lines invariably involved Bush. Kerry rarely got mentioned. He’s a presumption but not an preoccupation. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton dropped his name once, and got polite applause, but zero whoops and hollers. She got a louder response when she said electronic voting machines should include a paper trail.

“Dean explicitly endorsed Kerry several times, each time to warm applause, but he incited a bigger jolt of emotion when he criticized Democrats for not standing up to the president…”

Notice where one of the conference organizers says he has a whole agenda for Kerry that he’s not talking about…yet. The media won’t tell voters this year that Kerry’s base would play a large role in his presidency, and the first thing they will force him to do from their radical agenda is withdraw, withdraw, withdraw from Iraq.
