Anybody know how Senator Heinz was? Was he quite liberal, moderate, or conservative?

RINO - the fruits don't fall far from the tree. Between the parents, they never stood a chance.

There was a column posted yesterday by a former aide to Heinz, No Hiding. I gather Heinz was liberal on the environment and social issues, but the column concentrated mostly on how strong he was on defense.

The Heinz name is being liberally used in John Heinz's home state to influence voters who knew and loved John Heinz. But what did John Heinz himself believe? Yes, Heinz was the very embodiment of the vanishing breed known as the moderate Republican. Yes, he was a strong supporter of Social Security and the environment, and was routinely endorsed by organized labor. Did he agree with John Kerry on some domestic issues? Sure.

Yet there was another side to John Heinz. From 1985 until Heinz's death in 1991, the two men whom fate would cast as Teresa Heinz Kerry's first and second husbands sat in the Senate chamber together facing identical votes on the policies of Ronald Reagan to end the Cold War, and those of the first President Bush to oust Saddam Hussein from Kuwait. There was no mistaking the sharp differences in the Heinz and Kerry approaches to national security.

He was a moderate, but still, I bet he's rolling in his grave right now. The Heinz boys are complete disgraces.
