The only thing Bush values:

I was naturally suited to be a lawyer, almost from birth. It was as if, almost, God had willed it. He meant for me to be here, to punish you, and then punish you some more.
I refuse to die a martyrs death here, because you know why?  Martyrs are still dead.

Explain to me please what values Bush possessed?

pro-life (protect sanctity of life)
pro-guns (protect your family)
work your way through life (affirmative action)
abstinence programs (wait for marriage)
Iraq (stopping mass graves)
school choice- parents involvement in their child's education
child tax credit- helping working moms
national security- keeping families safe and sound in their own homes

Yes not everyone agrees with all of these stances but the man had conviction and compassion. He did what he thought was right for the country and did so honestly.

Kerry married Teresa Heinze for her money and they have hundreds of millions more than the Bushes ever will.

Both are incredibly wealthy. The main difference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Heinz_Endowments

I don't think George Bush (or John Kerry for that matter) san appreciate the value of any but the largest denominations in that picture...

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Gore lost Tennessee because the state changed, and he moved i the opposite direction. It's one of those situations where voters in TN may have been harsher on him because they knew he flip-flopped, and knew the old Gore. A voter in Maryland would know far less about Gore pre-1992.

It did move in the opposite direction but not by much. The south of the mid 20th century wouldn't vote for the democrats of today.
