18. The Dean campaign isn't focused on Kerry.
Edited on Sun Oct-19-03 07:16 PM by poskonig
We're focused on things like New Mexico, Arizona, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Michigan.

Was Dean right about saying that the evidence didn't merit an invasion last October? Yes. Was he right when he said that we would run into problems if we go in without international help, and that that the president should tell the truth about going in there for ten years?

Again, yes. Dean clearly has good judgment with international affairs, and as a Democratic-leaning voter, I respect this.

Kerry was saying pretty much was Dean was saying up to the war. But when it came time to vote, Kerry made a political miscalculation, especially since Bush stated Biden-Lugar would have "tied his hands." Given the soldier deaths and billions of dollars were paying, Kerry's vote is a lighting rod for those who aren't happy with the Iraq situation. I know Dean didn't have to vote, but politics isn't fair.

The Kerry campaign hasn't done much to recover from this, besides bash Dean, which is my point. Kerry bashes Dean, Dean bashes carry, and it all cancels out; no ground is gained. Kerry needs to get his Democratic credentials out or he will not survive this primary -- I've been saying this for months.
