By EMILY FREDRIX, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Teresa Heinz Kerry said Monday that President Bush (news - web sites) is unwilling to change, a character flaw that shows "inattention and indifference" rather than strength.


Speaking to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the wife of Democratic Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) said her husband is a more capable leader who would respond to issues important to Hispanics, something she said the Republican incumbent has not done.
She said of her husband, "His value in understanding complexity and not being afraid to face it and take action and follow through have been a trademark throughout his life."
Of Bush, the Republican-turned-Democrat said the president "demonstrates he cannot and will not change. The president thinks this shows strength when all it shows is inattention and indifference."
Voters see Bush as the more decisive of the two candidates, according to a recent Associated Press-Ipsos poll. Of registered voters, 75 percent labeled Bush as decisive while 37 percent described Kerry that way.
But along with the ability to decide comes stubbornness, many believe. Bush is considered stubborn by 75 percent of the people polled, Kerry 39 percent.
Heinz Kerry's 30-minute talk focused on health care, education and jobs. She received a standing ovation when she said her husband would sign into law the "DREAM ACT" if elected president. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act would allow undocumented young people to become legal U.S. residents, a status that could earn them in-state college tuition and other benefits.
Said Steve Schmidt, a spokesman for the Bush-Cheney campaign: "John Kerry has taken eight positions on the war in Iraq and has taken both sides of nearly every important issue facing America today."

Separately, in an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, she reacted negatively to the title of first lady but listed women from Eleanor Roosevelt to Betty Ford to Nancy Reagan as inspirational presidents' wives.
Asked by designer Kenneth Cole, who conducted the interview, about her feeling toward the term first lady, Heinz Kerry said, "Ick. There will be a first man one of these days, a first gent, I hope. First lady, I don't know. I always said having three sons, two male dogs and my late husband, I was the only first lady at my house."
If her husband is elected president, Heinz Kerry said her style would neither be that of Barbara Bush nor Hillary Rodham Clinton, in part because she has her own work and own identity.
"I would be his good friend, telling him when he was doing right and helping him when he wasn't," she said.
Heinz Kerry said the first ladies who inspired her were Roosevelt, Rosalynn Carter, Abigail Adams, Ford, who was "someone overcoming a lot — drink, cancer, tough times during Watergate," and Reagan, who was "very ladylike ... and very strong."
Fashionwise, Heinz Kerry said she likes Oscar de la Renta, often wears Ralph Lauren and sometimes buys clothes off the rack.

She said her favorite ketchup color was green.

Standing ovation? WTF? I have no problem with her spinning Kerry’s the flexibility thing but, someone tell me why “undocumented young people” AKA illegal aliens should get a discount on tuition.

Cool - The Dream Act is fantastic.

I always wanted federal and state funds to pay for illegal aliens to go to school when our own kids can't afford it.

Maybe next we can just start shipping raw goods to Mexico for free?

Companies outsourcing their jobs for profit is bad?

Our own Government paying Mexicans to go to school so they can take our jobs is good?

OK, got it.

Free education for illegal aliens when we can't even get the domestic kids to read. That's the stupidest :#cking thing I've ever heard.

And we all know Teresa has no trouble changing, she switches parties at the drop of a marriage!

I'm toying with a change, now that I have witnessed the BRILLIANCE that is Jeff on Coupling.

Coupling sucked in it's American iteration on NBC, but it's source was a BBC comedy that had the Friends configuration of 3 guys, 3 gals and their intertwined sex lives, . . . then added a Seinfeldian level of attention to minutiae and dwelling on quirks [ie, a protracted discussion of the 'sock zone' where, as you are undressing for 'the act' it's imperative to get the socks off immediately after the shoes, or at the very least IMMEDIATELY after the pants, or you're a guy standing around in nothing but his socks].

Jeff reminds one of a shaggy British Jimmy Fallon and he drives much of the guy talk. He categorizes everything about the opposite sex and has a theory on each aspect as well. Also, when he gets worked up, he lets slip some of the abuse his mother heaped on him in his teenage years, hilarious.
