John "Bob Dole" Kerry

Slate has published a series of endorsements from staff, editors and contributors. What was most impressive about the article was not that almost to a person, Slate is behind Kerry/Edwards or their tepid attitude towards their preferred candidate. What is most impressive about the piece is that it is blogger friendly. In the first paragraph, Slate provides a link to its own historical data; how they voted in 2000. Readers don’t even need to go as far as their Google Toolbar to discover that George Bush is down 2 endorsements this time around.

Something else jumps out in reading these endorsements. John Kerry is as exciting to his supporters as Bob Dole was. How well does that bode for him? Stay tuned for Tuesday's results.
