If this kind of thing is emblematic of the way Kerry’s campaign is going, he’s screwed.
I’ve done campaign where the advance team has been frazzled and balls have been dropped. In even a statewide campaign, it happens. However, a Presidential campaign should never have problems like this. The quality of a campaign can be seen in the quality of its staff and activists – and if these kind of problems are cropping up, it’s a sign of a campaign near collapse.
