Corporate leaders flocking to Kerry:

Among the Kerry converts is David Bonderman, founder and managing partner of the Fort Worth, Texas, investment firm Texas Pacific Group, who supported Mr. Bush for president in 2000 and earlier for Texas governor.

In an interview from a chartered boat off Italy where he is vacationing, Mr. Bonderman said: "George is a really good guy personally. But his policies are really terrible. And he had an opportunity to bring the country together -- which was his MO in Texas. But for reasons only his psychiatrist would know, he's chosen to do just the opposite as president. He's turning out to be the worst president since Millard Fillmore -- and that's probably an insult to Millard Fillmore."

Ouch! From a fellow good-old-boy Texan no less!

And this from a corporate chairman:

"I think to have big tax cuts when a war is going on is wrong economically," he said, adding, "I've benefited tremendously from the Bush tax cuts. But I don't think it's right."
