This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

New Hampshire has spoken, and who cares what they think?

I am in favor of the rotating primary system myself. Why should Iowa and NH get to filter out the candidates before anyone else even gets to vote?

But I just don't see what other people see in John Kerry. He looks like another Al Gore to me. He's been in the Senate for four terms and he has a record that will restrict his flexibility in the general election. But people in the "exit polls" seem to think that he stands the best chance of defeating Bush.

I feel sorry for Dean, because he has defined this election. He created a path by going after Bush on Iraq and getting the Democratic base all fired up. But I think people got spooked and saw Kerry nearby saying a lot of the same things as Dean but with a better "biography", and they migrated.

I'm afraid that should the Dems pick Kerry in the primaries and send him up against Bush we'll see Kerry stray from the winning (Dean) message and get ripped apart by the Rove machine. Even if he does win I'm not sure we'll get what we really want, a cure for the Bush disease that's infected the presidency. Should Kerry go on to get the nomination we can only hope that the inventive fundraising and communication mechanisms developed by the Democrats can be put to good use.

In a Democracy you get the president you deserve. If people could reliably smell a fraud we wouldn't have Bush sitting in the Whitehouse right now plotting his re-election strategy. Its frustrating to watch the process but like others, I accept the outcome.
