Red State Alert
Alabama Democrats optimistic about Kerry's chances
Posted on Sat, Mar. 20, 2004When I woke up this morning one of the rotating Blog*Spot ads at the top of the screen was from the RNC -- like they need 10 bucks from anyone who might show up on this blog. But has rotated off again, thankfully, so I don't have to tell you to contribute to Kerry, Obama, or the DNC instead (links at the side). But the New York Times was reporting this about their ninety-day campaign to let the slimy things have their way with the media, so was glad to see this. If you read down, you'll see that possibly Alabama will be allowed to make up its own mind, since neither of the candidates are planning a visit any time soon.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - It's been almost 30 years since a Democratic presidential candidate won in Alabama - and that was fellow Southerner Jimmy Carter.
But Alabama Democrats say they believe dissatisfaction with President Bush and John Kerry's record as a decorated Vietnam War veteran may return the state to the Democratic ranks in the Nov. 2 general election.
Is beautiful day out. I've started the sleeve, and may go out and paint or knit at the lake and then tell you what I did later.
