Marrying Up

With all due respect to my esteemed webmistress KJL,

Kerry’s “marrying up” line was a disaster. For the voters who are deciding on character rather than issues (many of the undecided and uninformed voters), the line was a stark reminder that Bush is still married to the girl of his youth, through all the ups and downs of his alcoholism and career. Bush did not “marry up”; he married down for the woman he loved. Kerry, in contrast, married up for his first wife, dropped her, and then married up big-time for his arrogant billionairess second wife. Which guy would you trust for steady leadership? Hugh Hewitt gives Kerry an “A” for his response to the question, but I think Hugh is dead wrong. Game, set, and match to GWB.
