He's clearly going for Clinton's "politics of tearing down" tactic, which worked so well against Dole in '96- accuse your opponent of going negative (which is a negative attack in of itself) while you yourself attack from the rear. Of course Kerry is not nearly slick enough to pull that kind of thing off, so he reverts to his patrician nature and just comes right out with a full-frontal assault. He's betting that the American people are too stupid to realize that his entire campaign has been one protracted personal attack on the president.

Yuh, and the President hasn't gone negative on Kerry either.

As for Bush's positive campaigining, most of it seems to come back to bite him in the ass for being less than honest.
