I've seen town meetings that Kerry has conducted in his home state on C-Span; and I've wondered if this is the same guy that I've seen on the Sunday morning TV news shows.
Here you have a guy in Kerry who in Nebraska sounds very liberal, looks relaxed, isn't a motor mouth, listens patiently and with empathy to his constituents, and fields tough questions. Then there is the Sunday morning TV Kerry who comes off like a mean spirited, constipated follower of corporatist agenda.
What happens to this guy between Nebraska and Washington, I've got no idea.
