Here's the transcript from JK speech to Editors & Publishers yesterday

YOU MUST WATCH THIS when you get the chance. trust me.

If you don't believe that this election is the most important in our life time, then all you have to do is look at the stories about the millions of middle class families who are struggling to get ahead. There are record bankruptcies, record foreclosure rates, and Americans owe more than $750 billion in credit card debt. And last year, because the cost of tuition has soared, 220,000 young people had to give up on their dream of a better future. These men and women built America. They worked hard. They contribute week after week And in return, they're told by this Administration, "You're on your own." My friends fundamental fairness is at stake in this election.

If you don't believe that this election is the most important in our lifetime, then all you have to do is look at the story about Iraq. First, the Administration would have you believe that we are about to turn over authority in Iraq to a new government - a handover that will signal the end of America's occupation. But, in reality, we are no closer to a real Iraqi government able to provide security for its people, make laws and ensure freedoms. This is still America's problem. My friends the strength of our national security is stake in this election.

The American ideas of fundamental fairness, truth, and hope are what brought me to a life of service. And I am running for president because I want to bring those ideas back to the American people so that together, we can build a stronger America.

Ten years ago, the Republicans introduced what they called "The Contract with America." They say that the contract was written to give the American people more faith and trust in their government. But it did the opposite.

1. I'm really starting to warm up to this guy.
The more I hear him talk, and more specifically the more I see him talk, the better I feel about him.

Someone needs to do a split-screen ad of Kerry's graceful, calm, non-confrontational and in fact brilliant reaction to the protesters juxtaposed to Bush's "protester areas" with people huddled in tiny areas surrounded by a cage.
