United Press International: Outside view: Kerry can clobber Bush
Kerry can clobber Bush
"Kerry, for three very important reasons, should be the Bush administration's worst nightmare. First, and most importantly, he did not share Vice President Dick Cheney's "other priorities" during Vietnam, nor log time with Bush in the Texas Air National Guard. No, Kerry, a man born of privilege who could have easily avoided a potential one-way sojourn to Southeast Asia, volunteered to serve his country, earning a variety of honors in the process."
" They still will attack him for the fact that he protested the Vietnam War when he returned home, and for his liberal positions on social issues, having a similar voting record to his fellow Massachusetts Democrat, Sen. Ted Kennedy. But that brings us to his second strength. Unlike so many Democrats today who seem satisfied to be defined in the most negative terms by Republican operatives, elected officials and an increasingly caustic conservative media machine, Kerry has proven since election 2000 that he relishes the fight like no other Democrat since somebody named Clinton."
