Why I'm Voting for Kerry

Common wisdom is that presidential re-election campaigns are all about the incumbent. If the incumbent is doing good enough, he wins. If he isn't doing well and the challenger seems good enough, the challenger wins. It's not an unreasonable way to vote. The incumbent has had four years to prove himself. If he has failed it's time to try someone new.

Bush has done a poor job over the last four years. Kerry may not be my dream candidate, but he is a solid replacement option. It's time to fire Bush for a job badly done and hire the replacement.

What bothers me about Bush?

Bush has failed at his job. It's time to fire Bush and replace him. Kerry is the only real candidate for the job. Kerry may not be the perfect applicant, but he's plenty qualified for the job.
