The First problem of the USA presidential election is that there are only 
two sides... So if you're not FOR then you're AGAINST. Human beings are more 
than two-sided i think. The fact is that Bush is a homophobic puritan afraid 
of the "outside world"... and i think you're right to remind  everyone that 
voters are not their president. And personnaly i don't think that Kerry 
would have been a big change (in international policies at least), US army 
is knee deep in Irak and it cannot be called back.
