Just because John Kerry isn't a particularly demonstrative person doesn't mean he doesn't get fired up. He's a fighter. That'll always be true of him no wonder what's going on in his political career. He's not going to stop fighting for the stuff he believes in any more than I am just because we lost the election. That's not the way I do politics. It's for keeps.

Some people are simply not comfortable with or certainly not known for getting "fired up". Adlai Stevenson, Hubert Horatio Humphrey, Geo McGovern, Jimma Carter, Walter Mondale, Michael Dutaxus, et al. come to realistic mind. Thus, too, KERRY "fired up" is not "the truth" -- it is "the land of make believe".

don't judge what you don't know. i have SEEN him fired up with my own two eyes, and i have no doubt that he was fired up as he went back to the senate.

Kerry without passion!

One of the common criticisms of KERRY by virtually every political analyst and strategist and casual observer -- of all persuasions -- pre-Election and post-Election was that he "lacked passion". And, "He could not instill any passion, even to his most ardent followers." Also, "Kerry was passionless". Lack of passion typically loses an election. Please, don't anyone write that KERRY has passion. Height yes, passion no.

Ok I'm jumping into this thread a wee bit late, however, I think its necessary to talk about the fact that it might well not matter who the Dems run in 2008 because if (and I believe there is a strong possibility for this) the GOP runs John McCain, no Democrat stands a chance. I could well see a McCain/Giuliani ticket for the GOP in 2008. and I shudder to think of it since as a native New Yorker, I know what a horrendous mayor Rudy was until 9/11.

While I love Obama, he won't have enough experience to get the nomination in '08. Perhaps the VP nomination. I'd love to see a Dean/Obama ticket go out and bust up some Republican ass in the debates.....

Kerry actually had incredible passion when he testified in front of Congress post-Vietnam, and in all related interviews, speeches and statements. It was something remarkable to see, and even Nixon and his administration realized it, saying that Kerry "looks like a Kennedy and talks like a Kennedy."

I always felt that the spark in him had somehow died out over the years. Personally, I think that Washington and politics are to blame. Politics suck the soul and humanity out of people and leave them unrecognizable.

Had Kerry had the same passion as he did in the early 70s, that would have been a wonder to watch.

I agree anitram. If Kerry had the same passion from the 70s, the race may have been very different. But of course there are always factors of "if he had done this...if he had done that".

Me too. I felt alot of emotion at the rallies I went to. In fact, the whole passion of the thing is why I went to the rallies. It wasn't the easiest thing to go to the rallies and debate parties and such after work, but I got alot out of those rallies and I don't regret my participation in Kerry's campaign. I never will, never mind that we didn't win. Vince Lombardi sure was wrong about winning.
