He is working too hard

Yahoo (AP) | Kerry Vacations in Idaho
As John Kerry was snowboarding down Idaho's Bald Mountain, the Bush-Cheney campaign was racing headlong in challenging the Democrat's credentials, a contrast that raised questions about the timing of the presumptive presidential nominee's vacation.

... The timing is critical as voters' image of the Democrat is evolving. Kerry's break from the public stage is allowing his rival to fill the void and draw a picture.

"This is probably one of the worst times because we're right in the middle of the struggle to define him," said Norm Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute.
Funny, I don't have any trouble defining him. Arrogant, check. Rich, check. Liberal, big honkin' check.

You know, I'll bet he would attract more favorable publicity if he told people he was a Vietnam vet. I wonder why he doesn't promote that more. Possibly because he grabbed the first loophole within reach to get out...? And then spent the next year or two as a civilian protesting the war? Yeah, I guess that would be it. What's the point of being rich if you can't even use it to get out of fighting a war you don't support? So he's not only rich, he's incompetent?

I'm just glad to see the press complain about somebody other than the President taking a vacation. Maybe they think he already is the President.
