Oliphant on Kerry

I mentioned the other day that I thought the Kerry campaign’s efforts to court swing voters were being hampered by the fact that loyal Democrats don’t seem especially enthusiastic about Kerry (as opposed to beating Bush) and it would be helpful to him if there was some more positive enthusiasm. I had the subject on my mind because I was eagerly awaiting the release of Tom Oliphant’s cover story in The American Prospect making the case for enthusiasm. Oliphant’s known Kerry a long time and argues that he has the right guts, brains, and work ethic to be president of the United States. Check it out.
