In watching the California debates last night, I realized that Al Sharpton and Dennis Kucinich are just so out of place on the political stage. The John's are so polished in their presentations and manners, that the other two looked like a couple of kids.
I saw Kucinich raise his hand a couple of times and was still ignored.
Sharpton has many brilliant ideas and is a wonderful spokesman, but I don't think he could get the nation to follow him as some of his beliefs are so out there that he could never actually be president. He would be a great Whitehouse spokesperson though. Could you imagine having the Whitehouse press corps having to deal with the reverend al every day?
The John's said nothing new and they will be a good tandem for the democrats this fall. I am still worried about the lack of conviction on some issues that Kerry won't talk about. He keeps saying he has plans on some things (Like what to do on Iraq, but doesn't give any details) and that he hasn't thought about other things (Like who he might want as VP).
Both John's want to cut the Pentagon budgets. Is that really a good idea while we have so many of our forces in hostile areas?
Finally, I firmly believe that Dennis Kucinich has no grasp on reality any longer and i worry about his being in Congress.
