There's been a breach in the pro-Kerry dike to some extent. Although Klein
still urges a vote for him, she is decidedly to the left of people like
Gitlin and David Corn. If you go to marccooper.com, you'll see a steady
assault on Kerry even though--like Klein--I assume he'll vote for him. And
on the Progressive magazine website, there's a fairly strong critique of
Kerry and the Democrats by editor Ruth Coniff. Again, I doubt if she'll
urge a vote for Nader. I think that the steady drumbeat of coverage in the
bourgeois press about Kerry's prowar twists and turns, his affinity for
super-rich donors to the DP, etc. combined with articles by folks like
Alexander Cockburn and general hell-raising by Nader and Camejo is starting
to have an impact.
