John Kerry found himself speechless Wednesday, a serious predicament for a candidate for president.
The Des Moines Register reports: Laryngitis forced the Democratic nominee to dump plans to campaign in eastern Iowa today. Instead, his running mate, John Edwards, will take his place at a town hall-style event in Davenport and a rally in Cedar Rapids, campaign aides said.
Kerry "strained his voice. He's going to be resting his voice for the debate," said the candidate's Iowa spokesman, Colin Van Ostern.
The first of three nationally televised presidential campaign debates is Sept. 30 in Florida. The others follow quickly - Oct. 8 in St. Louis and Oct. 13 in Tempe, Ariz
I strained my voice once, talking to someone on the other side of a screen door....
LOL thats funny. This is what happens when a canidate talks out of both sides of his mouth
Candidates for national office often offer up medical excuses for why they cancel out on previously announced plans to tour in a particular state.
It ususally indicates they have given up there and want to spend time and money elsewhere--but they don't want to alienate voters or admit their campaigns aren't doing well.
