  •  Kerry was anti-Bush, not optimistic (8+ / 0-)

    Dukakis was competence, not optimism.

      Was thinking positive message v. negative.  Bush I and Lee Attwater were despicable (Attwater redeeming himself somewhat by his death bed apology to Kitty Dukakis), while Bush II played a little good cop v. the swift boaters bad cop.  The Republicans this year have smeared smeared smeared, but unlike in 1988 and 2004, they keep switching around their smears.

        "Morning in America" was brilliant.
