Everyone is having fun with Kerry. Here is The New York Post.
Kerry himself has made his Vietnam service - and his leadership of the anti-war protests - the centerpiece of his candidacy. It's what defines his character, says his campaign.I don't think yesterday's campaigning is the stuff which reverses polls.
So if he's got a credibility problem on this issue, what does this say about his credibility on everything else?
Actually, this is becoming par for the course for the man who would be president.
Just last week, he did a similar verbal dance around the issue of SUVs. "I don't own an SUV," he declared, while stressing his support for higher fuel-economy standards.
Which brought the question: Then what's that gas-guzzler parked in your driveway? It's his wife's, he replied: "The family has it. I don't own it."
Gee, senator, have you ever driven the "family" SUV? Or do you refuse, on principle, even to set foot in the car?
While you're at it, got any thoughts on the meaning of "is"?
