Kerry should announce: "I will visit Iraq" this week
"And not just for two hours to deliver a plastic turkey, but to perform a fact-finding mission and see how we can salvage this nation we invaded and restore our honor in the world community."

Eisenhower went to Korea when campaigning in 1952 and it helped him. Kerry would right away prove his courage and interest, contrasting his intentions with Bush's surreptitious in-and-out photo op ("If anyone finds out about this, Condi, I'm ready to turn this baby around! I'm ready, Condi!")

Whatcha think?

2. How about "I shall go to Korea." Worked for Ike.

4. OK. "I shall go to Iraq."
But if he doesn't bring a plastic turkey, you'll have to change your screen name.

Think about that.
