TPM Reader GR reports in from the field …

Just a small FYI about Kerry’s speech. Kerry is running for re-election here in Mass. A couple of weeks ago he swung by my little town of North Adams and gave what was an odd stump speech. It wasn’t about him or his primary/general election opponent. His speech, given while standing on a chair in a local restaurant, was very similar to what he gave last night at the DNC. It was almost exclusively about Obama and how odious John McCain’s Bush-esque transformation has become. Only few moments were spent on the subject of increasing the the Democratic majorities in congress, and zero time was given to the subject of John Kerry.

I got the sense that 2008 public Kerry is very different than the man I had voted for in 2004. He was full of determined righteousness and he wasn’t going to take it any more. Sigh. If only….
