John Kerry published a statement today that shows both a stunning grasp of the obvious and a remarkable lack of self-analysis:

With a month to go before the New Hampshire primary, John Kerry says voters must choose between Democratic front-runner Howard Dean or a more centrist candidate like himself. The Massachusetts senator said he would fare better than Dean against President Bush in November. ... Aides to Kerry note that Dean fares poorly against Bush in head-to-head matchups.

While they're looking, have aides to Kerry noticed that the difference in Bush's lead over both Dean and Kerry falls within the margin of error? Neither of them stand a chance against Bush because neither of them are getting any traction on him now, when Bush isn't even campaigning. Why? Because both men have demonstrated that they will say anything to anybody to get elected. Kerry has spent his entire campaign running against his vote for the war, and Dean's flip-flops are so common now that DeanWatch has become one of my largest categories on this blog. Unfortunately for the Democrats, Dean is sucking up all of the political oxygen in the primary.
