Kerry Is Unelectable

Well, not necessairly, but goddamn he can be a fool at times. According to ABC:

Jan. 26— Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., is discounting notions that any Democratic candidate would have to appeal to Southern voters in order to win the presidency, calling such thinking a "mistake" during a speech at Dartmouth College.

Kerry's remarks Saturday were so starkly antithetical to how many southern Democrats feel their party should campaign for the presidency, that a former South Carolina state Democratic chairman told ABCNEWS that Sen. Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, D-S.C., who endorsed Kerry last week, perhaps "ought to reconsider his endorsement."

He's right, the Democrats might be able to get along with out the South and might have to get along without it, but why on Earth would you say that? It can only cost you votes! Kerry has just said "I don't care what you have to say, you do not count." to an entire region of the country. How does he expect to beat Bush if he says stuff like that? Dean is not the only one who can produce "gaffes".
