...ever see the difference between Bush throwing out the first pitch at a St. Louis game and Kerry doing the same in Boston? Well, to put it in perspective for you, Bush proved that in his younger days he could've probably snuck a pork chop past a wolf, where as Kerry proved that he was more than likely the last guy picked and threw like a girl.
that alone makes Bush closer to the average guy than Kerry.
