23. I didn't believe it BUT I don't know what false info was given to

Kerry and others in Congress. Kerry has the clout and connections to talk to a lot of people and I seem to remember reading that he did talk to others to get more info on what was going on in Iraq. According to what I read, he sought out specific people, people he thought were more informed than he, to question.

It's foolish to argue that Kerry is stupid as there is evidence to the contrary, so whatever he was told must have been pretty compelling.

And it's not about him "believing Bush*," it's about other people who were believed.

I could say "I don't care, he should have known better" but I didn't have to vote on this issue and I don't know what info those who did vote had that I didn't, and still don't, have.

Initially, I didn't think I could vote for Kerry, Edwards, Lieberman, or Graham because of their votes on the war, but that could leave me with only Bush* to vote for and I KNOW I'm not doing that.

I am supporting the one man in the race who voted against the war in Congress, Dennis Kucinich. He got it right.

But if he doesn't get the nomination, I may have to support someone who got it wrong. It's either that or the man who started the war, isn't it?
