Captain's Caption Contest #20 - Hard/Soft Edition!

It's Friday, so it must be time for another Captain's Caption Contest -- our 20th edition! It's getting pretty danged hard to keep up with John Kerry's flip-flops. This morning, Kerry's campaign is pushing the notion that they'll sell a softer, gentler Kerry in the leadup to the convention:

This is an emotional side of Kerry that he rarely shows publicly. At campaign stops he often asks voters personal questions about their health, their age and even their income, but he doesn't reveal much about his own feelings or share personal stories. He usually leaves that duty to people who campaign with him, including his children, his wife and his former Navy crewmates from the Vietnam.

But don't think he's gone all wussy on us, either (thanks to my partner Whiskey, who sent this ahead of a half-dozen others):

The softer side of Kerry

Guest judging this week will be Chumley Wonderbar from Plastic Hallway, a fine blog and a loyal reader of CQ who may regret being ineligible to win this week. As always, leave your comments on the comments page, and as always, put your best caption entries in the comments section -- NO e-mail, please! (E-mailed entries will be specially marked by CQ Archives security personnel and shoved down Sandy Berger's pants.) The contest will remain open until 8 pm Sunday, July 25th, at which point the comments will be closed and Chumley will pick the winners.

Let the games begin!

COMMENTS CLOSED: Another great slate of entries, everyone! Chumley has already made his decisions, and I'll post the winners shortly ...
