Heard on NPR today about John Kerry: "... now that he's the Democrats' virtual candidate."
No wonder the Dems have trouble -- they can't get a real candidate, only a virtual one.
Do it correctly: ... now that he's virtually the Democrats' candidate. I'm not much for the word virtually anyhow. It's overused. But if we must use it, let's put it where it belongs and use the adverb, not the adjective.
