40. Does he say that?
Edited on Tue Aug-10-04 12:39 AM by jpgray
"Yes, I would have voted for that authority but I would have used that authority to do things very differently,"

This is kind of a weird statement--he would still vote for it yet he would do things differently? Does that mean Bush doesn't factor into things and the authorization would be somehow used benignly, or that he would still vote for the authorization knowing what has happened under its auspices would still happen? That's the question, it seems, and you and Will have given different answers. Either one of the fragments makes sense by itself, but together...? I don't know which interpretation does right by what Kerry meant, and that makes this a poor statement.
