John Kerry is releasing a “misery index” to keep tabs on how this economy is really affecting the middle class. But is the term “misery index” really the way to go? Maybe we need to be a little more Edwardsian. How about the escape from misery index? Kerry needs to come up with a more-defined platform and personality, and quick. He can’t expect the Bush team to do all the work for him.
