Read why Steve Landsburg changes his mind from will-vote-for-Kerry to will-vote-for-Bush. It's because of the running mate: Kerry has chosen John Edwards the xenophob. Now, try to imagine that you were Steve and Kerry were SBY. Of course, Edwards were JK. Would you have voted for SBY? Considering that JK were truly a sinophob, ceteris paribus, I would have not. (The only thing that made me vote for SBY in reality was that Mega is way, way worse in all other aspects).
