JOHN KERRY IS ASHAMED OF HIS FOREIGN POLICY POSITIONS: He must be. Why else would he be trying to take them off the table?
It won't work, any more than George H.W. Bush's war record let him take issues off the table.
UPDATE: Mickey Kaus observes: "If Kerry's response to every substantive GOP charge about his record as a Senator is going to be 'I served in Vietnam,' it'll be a long campaign. [You mean "long"="tedious" or "long"="losing"?-ed Both!]"
ANOTHER UPDATE: Kevin Aylward looks at some polls on this subject.
In 1992, defending Vietnam war draft-dodger Bill Clinton, Kerry said: "We do not need to divide America over who served and how." Now Vietnam division is Kerry’s major policy. Move on, Senator. There's a new war.
