Christopher Reeve

I don't like to take advantage of someone's death for political purposes, but hey, the Republicans have been doing it for 3 years with the victims of 9/11 so I guess it's fair game now.

If John Kerry does not mention and hammer home the death of Christopher Reeve tomorrow he is asking to lose. Reeve's vigorous support of stem-cell research is something supported by the majority of Americans and is opposed by Bush. Kerry needs to hammer this home--stem-cell research could have saved Superman!!! Obviously, it would be taking it too far to make Bush complicit in the death of Reeve, but Kerry needs to point out that even if there was a direct connection between stem-cell research and the rehabilitation of quadriplegics, Bush would not support helping the disabled.
