Business as usual
Two of Kerry's recent statements do indeed make the upcoming election feel damnably familiar, between a Republican whose views I can't tolerate and a Democrat who agrees with some of those views, but is still preferable for many other reasons. Nixon/Humphrey, BushI/Mondale--and, actually, BushII/Gore. In other words, although the present race is critical because this version of BushII is absolutely evil and Kerrey's more than tolerable, he's quite liberal--but he has significant slippage on some of his views.
