The under-the-radar candidate

Mort Sahl once said that Reagan won because he ran against Carter; if he had run unopposed, he would have lost. John Kerry seems to favor Sahl's insight. By running a stealth candidacy, Kerry keeps the spotlight on Bush as Iraq worsens and the economy threatens to head for southern climes once again. Bush is running unopposed, and he's losing.

The American Prospect has a good dialogue on Kerry's inviso-mode campaign. Well worth reading.
