Two more Kerry pieces. Harold Meyerson has a good piece in the American Prospect on why John Kerry is well-positioned to win the Democratic nomination for president. A bit early, isn't, Harold? But his process-of-elimination logic is hard to argue with: Gephardt's got too much baggage, Lieberman is too conservative, Dean is too obscure (and perhaps too dovish even for Democratic activists), and Edwards is too young. The New Republic's Ryan Lizza offers a more negative take on Kerry, on the hazards of being the early frontrunner.
