  •  A Kerry Supporter (none)
    I've been on Kos since pre-scoop days and I was in the vast minority here on Kos by supporting Kerry, but as much as it bothered me when Kos would rank Kerry next to dead last in the Cattle Calls (often times below Joementum, which I thought was absurd), I stuck around.  I had a lot of good threads with Dean supporters, where they argued how great Dean was and I tried to convince them that Kerry was actually pretty bad ass (busting up Iran-Contra, leading the Veterans against the war) even though he often came across as kind of a prick nowadays.  I ended up taking the position that I wanted Kerry the candidate, with Dean's message, and I think that;s what we ultimately got.  NOw I still admire what Kerry did for our country, but I fully support Dean for DNC chair.  I think we need reform, we need an active, stronger party that's not afraid to innovate.  Regardless of who we supported in the primaries, the people that stuck around throughout those battles shared and still share that common goal.
