26. I remember thinking then that this would come up later as an attack point.
Don't get me wrong, I don't support Kerry or Edwards, but to be fair, this seems like a calculated effort on the Republicans' part. They threw in the body armor provision - a provision that never should have been needed, had the troops been supplied it in the first place - and then noted who voted against the $87 billion.

Then it's a simple matter of underlining the body armor portion and neglecting to mention the fact that it was part of the larger bill, and voila, instant "them Democrats voted again' the troops!"

To both JK's and JE's credit, they voted against the $87 billion, a vote I respect. Even those of us who don't support either of them, or only support one of them, should be honest with the facts. This attack is a poor one and unworthy of progressives.
