Just as long as you don't do it at one of his campaign stops.

This is very true!

I spend a lot of time at two left-wing blogs these days, dailykos and atrios, and some posters are very unhappy with the way the Kerry campaign is being handled. Others trust that the powers-that-are in the campaign know what they're doing. And many believe that it's up to us Kerry supporters to get the word out through volunteering and conversations with undecided voters, stressing Kerry's good points.

Personally, I hate mudslinging and dirty politics, and would like Kerry to stay above this type of tactic. But I also desperately want him to win in November.

And the reason there is so much mudslinging in politics is that it WORKS. If it didn't, it wouldn't be done. Issues aren't discussed because it is far more effective to smear the other goy than to actually discuss issues.

Are you referring to the $87 billion for the troops? If yes, do you mean the version of the bill that Bush threatened to veto, or the one that ended up passing?

I would just like Kerry to come out in favor of something.

I was blasted by my ultra-liberal boss for saying I didn't like him and wouldn't campaign for him.

At this time last year, I felt like I could safely vote for Gore. I could have campaigned for him. I'm sure that has something to do with having the guy as VP for 8 years.

Kerry is a non-entity. He's playing it so safe he's losing voters like me, who are tempted to cast it for a third party rather than vote for a soggy waffle.

I still believe this is the year a third party could have taken it, if they'd put someone moderate up.
