Will Kerry Flip-Flop On The Nomination?

Waiting to hear, "I accepted the nomination before I didn't formally accept it."

BOSTON (Reuters) - White House hopeful John Kerry may delay his formal acceptance of the Democratic presidential nomination, enabling him to continue to spend freely for an extra five weeks, a campaign aide said on Friday.

Both President Bush and Kerry are limited to federal funding of about $75 million each after they accept the Republican and Democratic nominations respectively. Before that time they can spend as much as they can legally raise.

But Democrats are holding their convention in Boston from July 26 to 29 five weeks before the Republicans meet in New York from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2.

The Kerry campaign said it is unwilling to give the incumbent president a free-spending advantage by having the Massachusetts senator accept the nomination at an earlier date.

Sort of makes the whole convention irrelevant if you don't get your nominee to accept?

It's utterly ridiculous to hold a nominating convention and NOT nominate a candidate, but I bet that's exactly what the Dems will do. It's all about the money.

Well, duh, of course it's all about the money. And by the way, the Democrats aren't alone in making money a priority in the campaign. Dubya is on pace to collect more money than Reagan, Pappa Bush and Bob Dole did in their FIVE presidential campaigns COMBINED.

And that stuff about Kerry being a flip-flopper? Very potent stuff, and the Republicans have done a good job of convincing folks that he is. The problem is, it's mostly not true

I do not care. Kerry has already endorsed the crimes that israelis are comitting in Palestine and given its absolute engagement for the jewish cause world wide. Wether Kerry or Bush wins, 98% of us will be under the wip of the 2% jews.

Hey, that's a nice, shiny hat you've got there, P. Cox. How do you manage to put it on with your head buried so deeply up your rectum?
