1. Shit, I was hoping that was a headline.
Funny how this broke too late for the East Coast papers to go with a 'line such as that.

6. And I doubt the media will break out the debate tapes with Kerry pointing
out that exact issue of Bush's choice to ignore diplomacy with North Korea.

11. Diplomacy and coalition? What a pair of ridiculous notions!
Democrats must identify Bushs policy in the Middle East, and its weakening effects on our ability to sustain a military presence in regards to North Korea; also, identify how our efforts throughout the Middle East have weakened our political clout throughout the world, thus allowing Kim Jung II to do as he pleases. Democrats must actively pursue intense diplomacy with both Russia, and China, and begin a discussion regarding Kim Jung IIs off-shore accounts, and finances. As a coalition, the ruling elite within North Korea must have their pocket books attacked, through sanctions and other means.

Richardson has identified some very important means for a resolution in this regard, however, as a campaign slogan, well, what is stated above and by Richardson will appear weak. Diplomacy appears weak, and we must take a very hard-line against the inevitable character assassination.

2. "we don't have a policy toward North Korea..."
"... we have an attitude."

9. Agreed. He's got the background and experience to get the job done.
Diplomacy... it's been so long since our country has tried that option.
