John Kerry, A Manly Man

John Kerry, A Manly Man

George Will points out that John Kerry's success is a renunciation of the feminzed politics.

"Leadership, Lord says, presupposes some element of ``such traditionally manly qualities as competitiveness, aggression or, for that matter, the ability to command.'' Because ``leadership that is not prepared to disadvantage anyone is hardly leadership at all.''

Kerry told New Hampshire that he had seriously disadvantaged people: ``I've been a prosecutor. I've sent people to jail for the rest of their life.'' He punctuated this manly indifference to syntax by noting that he is a gun owner who supported the 1996 welfare reform. It repealed the entitlement Aid to Families with Dependent Children."
