    One more thing,

    What is Kerry's strategy at this point?  It's quite well known (well, I think, anyway) that attacks on another candidate do nothing to inflate your own numbers.  It usually depresses the attacked's number, and it discourages participation, but the attacker's number don't usually rise (they might even drop a bit).

    Kerry's numbers are atrocious.  Everywhere.  The only thing he is doing with his attacks on Dean is to help Gep (in Iowa), Clark (most everywhere else), and W (in the generals).

    This might explain Cutter's desire for secrecy (and the stealth attack from that 527 group) as a way to have it both ways.  Except that Kerry has been on an anti-Dean tirade 24/7 of late.

    What are the positive-type efforts coming from his campaign lately?  "The Real Deal" (so many jokes, so little time) and the "First 100 days" schtick.  No one cares enough about the guy, and he thinks that people are going to go to his website to look at the laundry list he's cooked up?  Right....

    Put your money where your mouth is: Give $100 to the Democratic presidential nominee (whoever that may be.)
