LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Presidential Campaign Heats Up Too Early

March 18, 2004

Is it just my fuzzy memory, or do I recall other presidential election years when the hot-and-heavy mudslinging didn't really get rolling until after the party conventions? Here we are in the middle of March, and Sen. John Kerry is the presumptive Democratic nominee. Yet he and President Bush are already going at it tooth and nail, as if the election were eight days away instead of nearly eight months away.

Gentlemen, please! Will we have to put up with this onslaught for the entire eight months? How about cooling it for a while and actually getting some of the people's business done in Washington during the interim?
