Depending on where you are on the political spectrum, John Kerry’s positions on major issues either take into account the subtle nuances of a complex world or they are nothing but flat-out flip flops. The question is, can he get over the November hump with either of these perceptions? Will the sliver of the population that makes up the undecided and all-powerful swing vote react well to positions that take into account the subtleties naturally required of a noggin-based platform? I’m not so sure. Even in a world that becomes more gray by the minute, black and white may be the only way to close the deal.
