A few minutes ago, CNN ran a segment about today’s Democratic Primaries. The anchor posed the question of whether or not Southerners would be able to accept “the Democratic front-runner, Northerner John Kerry“.
I resent the implication that I would not vote for him because he’s a Northerner and I’m a Southerner.
Surveys of voters in Tennessee and Virginia have shown Kerry leading those races, despite being a Massachusetts Yankee running against two men with Southern roots.
I care about issues and ideas, not birthplace. Contrary to popular perception, I don’t still reminisce about the “War of Northern Aggression”.
