The leftcoaster has some detail about the "Clinton takeover" of Kerry's campaign.
Personally, I think it is a good idea to make this election a referendum on Bush. However, I'm not sure it's a good idea to focus, laser-like, on the economy. Iraq and security matter a great deal in the post-9/11 world and Kerry needs to make this election a referendum on Iraq too.
Sometime soon, the 1000th US soldier will die in Iraq. I'm guessing the media is going to say something about that.
Then again, they might be completely muddied from the crap that's about to start flying. Only click this link if you want to see the ugly future.
Updates: Sadly, 8 US soldiers died in Iraq Tuesday and the 1000 threshold was crossed.
