Why does John Kerry even think of running again?

The Gallup organization recently did a poll in which it asked, "What comes to your mind when you think about John Kerry?" The answers, given by the respondents in order of the percentage of people giving them:
% Answer
13 Nothing/Not familiar with him/No opinion
12 Already lost/Had his chance
7 Don’t like him
6 Dishonest/Don’t trust
6 Wishy-washy/Too indecisive
6 Other
5 Poor choice for candidate
5 Poor speaker/Needs to think before speaking
5 Weak/No backbone
4 Traitor/Disloyal to military
And finally, after a majority of the respondents gave a negative impression of John Forbes Kerry, we have the first positive answer:
4 Would make a good candidate
Other traits included Unintelligent, Phony, Incompetent, Conceited, Uptight and Pushy. With that list of impressions, and considering almost two-thirds of the answers were negative, why would John Kerry ever think about running again for president?

Oh wait, the answer is probably in the list above, starting with "Conceited" and continuing with "strong-headed."

    Virtually everyone said the same thing about Richard Nixon after his humiliating defeats in 1960 and 1962. John Kerry's chances are certainly slim, but never say never.

    John kerry is so unpopular besides the demonrats just
    Hey, they haven't taxed Christmas yet????

    At first I thought this was funny...

    then I realized the awful truth of it.
    Be sure to read all the way to the end!

    Tax his land,
    Tax his bed,
    Tax the table
    At which he's fed.

    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes
    Are the rule.

    Tax his cow,
    Tax his goat,
    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.

    Tax his ties,
    Tax his shirt,
    Tax his work,
    Tax his dirt.

    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he
    Tries to think.

    Tax his cigars,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries, then
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways
    To tax his ass.
    Tax all he has
    Then let him know
    That you won't be done
    Till he has no dough.

    When he screams and hollers,
    Then tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He's good and sore.

    Then tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he's laid.

    Put these words
    upon his tomb,
    "Taxes drove me
    to my doom..."

    When he's gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.

    Accounts Receivable Tax
    Building Permit Tax
    CDL license Tax
    Cigarette Tax
    Corporate Income Tax
    Dog License Tax
    Federal Income Tax
    Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
    Fishing License Tax
    Food License Tax,
    Fuel permit tax
    Gasoline Tax (42 cents per gallon)
    Hunting License Tax
    Inheritance Tax
    Interest expense
    Inventory tax
    IRS Interest Charges IRS Penalties

    (tax on top of tax)
    Liquor Tax
    Luxury Taxes
    Marriage License Tax
    Medicare Tax
    Property Tax
    Real Estate Tax
    Service charge taxes
    Social Security Tax
    Road usage taxes
    Sales Tax
    Recreational Vehicle Tax
    School Tax
    State Income Tax
    State Unemployment Tax (SUTA)
    Telephone federal excise tax
    Telephone federal universal service fee tax
    Telephone federal, state and local surcharge taxes
    Telephone minimum usage surcharge tax
    Telephone recurring and non-recurring charges tax
    Telephone state and local tax
    Telephone usage charge tax
    Utility Taxes
    Vehicle License Registration Tax
    Vehicle Sales Tax
    Watercraft registration Tax
    Well Permit Tax
    Workers Compensation Tax

    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
    and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
    We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class n the world,
    and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
    What happened?

    I hope this goes around the world 10 times...
