VodkaPundit presents you the first salvo in the 2008 Democratic primary race:
President Bush and Sen. Hillary Clinton don’t agree on much. But John Kerry’s disgraceful attempt to use Mary Cheney’s sexuality as a political football had them both criticizing the top Democrat on Monday for the sleazy assault.
“I thought it was over the line,” Bush told the Associated Press, in his first in-person comments on the Kerry-Cheney flap.
The former first lady addressed the same topic in a New York radio interview, telling WROW in Albany, “I think [Kerry] was trying to strike actually a sensitive note [but] it might not have worked.”
Sen. Clinton said she could “understand why some people might have been bothered” by Kerry’s decision to use a presidential debate to announce that Mary Cheney was “a lesbian.”
