"Kerry 'thinking hard' about 2008 run for president" sayz Reuters

And the money quote is?
"If you can get help me find 60,000 votes in Ohio ...," he joked, referring to the close race in that state on which his 2004 loss to President Bush hinged.
Well, Mr. Junior Senator, since you asked, I'll tell you where you can find them.

First, commit to this. (Update: Ron Rolling points out that the link is dead. I've emailed Catholic Answers about it. The link pointed to the Voters' Guide for Serious Catholics; I reccommended that Mr. Kerry embrace the five non-negotiables for Catholic voters.)

Next, declare your absolute refusal to participate in this, should the Senate's Catholic Democrats do so.

Then, clean out your closet of all the old skeletons.
That includes a visit to Sean Cardinal O'Malley for the sacrament of reconciliation and a public accounting of your changed positions.

Try to make this change-of-position your last flip-flop, OK?
Finally, devise a platform that actually amd justly serves the common good and addresses the needs of the American people. In words that we all can understand. Without referencing a website. Or creating the Socialism lite Welfare States that currently wither to death in Western Europe.

Bet you'd find those 60,000 votes. Matter of fact, you'd probably grab 55% of 65 million American Catholics.

Yeah, the DNC would disown you and the usual suspects wouldn't take your call. On the other hand, look at the funding streams you could tap.

And most importantly of all, Senator: you could continue to serve without losing your soul.

Why don't you give it a go?

Don't worry. I won't hold my breath waiting for you to do it. Really.
