Kerry's Permanent Campaign?

I was somewhat surprised to recieve an email from John Kerry on Friday. He was asking for support on a bill that would provide healthcare for every child that he was planning to introduce at the opening of the next Congress. A healthcare bill was supposed to be his first priority if he had been elected.

I think this is an interesting idea. With Democrats out of power in all branches of government, we need a leader that we can look to. If Kerry can keep it up with a series of popularly supported legislative initiatives, he would be well positioned for 2008.

In fact, this is similar to what I wanted Gore to do after the 2000 debacle. If Gore had stayed in the public eye by commenting on the failures of the Bush Administration as they happened, he would have been a shoo-in for the nomination this year.

If you didn't get one, you can read the text of the email here. Or watch a video here.

Update (12/1): Looks like The Carpetbagger Report agrees with me. Cool.
