All of my best friends are Republicans, and they ask me, "Are you crazy or something? Why are you doing this?" Well, it's simple. I tell them the world is changing. Our country is changing. And we need a leader who understands that change that's taking place. And most important, we need a leader who will level with us about how we can adapt to that change and make things change for the better.

I've met privately with John Kerry, I've talked with him, I read all his position papers, and I would suggest you do likewise. I like him.

I like him too, Lee.

So, where do we draw the line between "voting for" and endorsing?

Further, who do I contact to give *my* official endorsement?
I'm glad to see all those unions endorsing Kerry. Are their members gently asked to vote for Kerry? How does that really work?
Norman Schwarzkopf appears to be defecting from the Bush camp as well. He was a big supporter in 2000.
