A story on Mondays NBC Nightly News made brief mention of how a new National Journal rating of Congress for 2003 ranked Senator John Kerry as the most liberal Senator in the entire chamber, but only in the context of how John Edwards isnt much less liberal and so may not do much as a VP candidate to help Kerry in the South. NBCs Tim Russert also raised the ranking in the roundtable on Sundays Meet the Press and Dan Rather asked Kerry about it during Sundays CBS News debate with the Democratic presidential candidates, but the topic didnt make it onto Sunday or Mondays CBS Evening News, nor onto ABC.
Monday night on NBC, Campbell Brown provided a story on the chances that Kerry will pick John Edwards as his running mate. Brown noted: Its unclear Edwards can help deliver Southern states. Hes only won South Carolina so far. Neither candidate has produced any major legislation in Congress. And while a recent survey named Kerry the most liberal Senator, Edwards was just behind at number four.
On screen, NBC credited the National Journal 2003 Vote Ratings and listed four names under the Most Liberal Senators heading: John Kerry (D-Mass.) Jack Reed (D-RI) Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) John Edwards (D-NC)
NationalJournal.com is a paid subscription site, but Saturdays Washington Times carried a story by Stephen Dinan about the new ratings, List says Kerry top Senate liberal. Dinan also noted how the Americans for Democratic Action, a prominent liberal advocacy group, gives Mr. Kerry a lifetime career rating of 92 on a 100-point scale, with 100 being the most liberal. Mr. Kerry's rating is higher than fellow Democratic candidate Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, Ohio Democrat. For Dinans February 28 story: www.washtimes.com
Every last one of them seems to be insincere, megomanical, two-faced, and power-crazy......but.....there is one thing.....except for Kucinich....they got nice hair!
