Last night, during the presidential debates, there was a moment where Kerry was answering Bob Schieffer’s question about the strong women in the each of their lives. Bush answered first, eloquently, I might add, and then Kerry proceeded. He first gave Bush a kudos for being such a great family man/father. He then spoke about how the three of them (Bob Schieffer, George W. Bush, and Kerry) marrying up. He said:
Well, I guess the president and you and I are three examples of lucky people who married up. And some would say maybe me more so than others. But I can take it.
I’m realizing today that most took this to mean money. Some even bashed him saying it was a tasteless joke. I took it to mean looks as people ruthlessly make fun of John Kerry for being “ugly” or “homely”.
What did you think he meant by this? Soung and I had a debate of our own regarding his comment. And judging by the some of the News reports, people are agreeing with Soung.
