ABSTRACT
The article looks at the negative aspects of the U.S. presidential campaigns in the 2000 and 2004 elections. According to the article, the idea of U.S. President George W. Bush's campaign against Democratic candidate John Kerry is to portray Kerry as a "waffling Washington insider too aloof to connect with average Americans." This portrait of Kerry is the same one that Republican researchers painted of Democratic candidate Al Gore during the 2000 presidential elections.
