John Kerry and Barbara Boxer: Separated at Birth?

Who knew failed presidential candidate John Kerry could become so entertaining? More and more he sounds like Senator Boxer or post-2000 Al Gore. Looks like he's already trying to fire up the base for a 2008 re-run.


(Boston Globe)
BOSTON (AP) Sen. John Kerry, in some of his most pointed public comments yet about the presidential election, invoked Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy on Monday as he criticized President Bush and decried reports of voter disenfranchisement.

The Massachusetts Democrat, Bush's challenger in November, spoke at Boston's annual Martin Luther King Day Breakfast. He reiterated that he decided not to challenge the election results, but ''thousands of people were suppressed in the effort to vote.''

''Voting machines were distributed in uneven ways. In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, eleven hours to vote, while Republicans (went) through in 10 minutes same voting machines, same process, our America,'' he said.

In his comments, Kerry also compared the democracy-building efforts in Iraq with voting in the U.S., saying that Americans had their names purged from voting lists and were kept from casting ballots.

''In a nation which is willing to spend several hundred million dollars in Iraq to bring them democracy, we cannot tolerate that here in America too many people were denied that democracy,'' Kerry said.

    Would we suffer the same political baby-diatribe on voter "fraud" had a Democrat won the election? Did we hear this when Clinton won?
    I'd like to see ONE person* come forward who was fraudulently prevented from voting. Nevemind the margin of millions.
    *(Those who didn't register, went to the wrong voting poll, didn't want to wait in line, and prisoners don't count.)
