Political Support

Last weekend I saw someone driving around with a "Kerry – Edwards" window cling in the rear window of their car. Remember John Kerry? He ran for president 4 years ago.

I voted for Kerry.. I don't remember particularly liking him, but I supported him mainly because he wasn't Bush, and he was the most likely not-bush to win. Could you imagine running for office and having your greatest strength be that you aren't someone else? Could you imagine losing to that someone else?

Kerry didn't have a particularly revolutionary platform – nothing that would warrant advertising his campaign 4 years after the fact. If it had been a bumper sticker I guess I could understand – some of those are impossible to get off. But a window cling? I mean, some of those fall off if you just look at them funny.
