132. He's not Howard Dean
who was unwavering and unequivocal in his opposition to the war, as I was. However, he has the core values that I relate to, and he is a measured thinker who will readily admit that, in hindsight, his vote was wrong. Wow, a fallible human being, who admits a mistake. More importantly, he is a war veteran who has killed others in service to his country, and will not take the matter of war lightly. Unlike Howard Dean, his vote had an impact, and he obviously felt that our national security was paramount. I also believe John Kerry, along with many of his Democratic colleagues, never believed that GWB would launch a preemptive attack, without UN support, going against 300 years of US international policy. Please forgive him his human foibles, and welcome his willingness to admit that his faith was misplaced.
