    10. but William Rivers Pitt said;

    The Trial of John Kerry
    By William Rivers Pitt
    t r u t h o u t | Perspective


    One of these days, this will be a textbook case for political science professors to use as a teaching tool.

    Here is a Democratic candidate for the Oval Office in a year when the liberal base of the party is almost completely unified in its disgust for the sitting Republican President. The candidate, a Senator, has a 20-year liberal voting record to admire: He is peerless on the environment, a staunch defender of a woman’s right to choose, completely reliable across the whole spectrum of gay rights issues, totally solid on education, an advocate for campaign finance reform and health care reform, and will fight to the death to keep Social Security fully funded and reliable. It is the liberal base of the party that turns out to vote in the primaries, so the candidate’s record gives him an immediate advantage.

    Add to the scenario a campaign season dominated by foreign policy issues. The candidate is a Vietnam veteran who wears Purple Hearts next to a Bronze and Silver Star, giving him a ‘real deal’ quality compared to the sitting President, who used family influence to avoid that conflict. The candidate served for several years on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, affording him the justifiable claim that he is a seasoned professional when it comes to dealing with the rest of the world.

    This experience is tempered by wisdom and hard knowledge; the disgust and horror experienced by the candidate during Vietnam had an almost mythic quality, and led him to become a prominent voice against the war upon his return home, so much so that he earned a spot on Nixon’s infamous “Enemies List.” His service in combat, coupled with his principled stand against the Vietnam war and his time on the Foreign Relations Committee, has forged a whole man. This serves him well in the primaries with fence-sitters, and with people who might think Democrats are “soft on national defense.”


    ...


    The Iraq Resolution was enacted October 16, 2002

    you're being disingenuous here Will. you do remember what you wrote, right? You were a hardcore Kerry supporter well after that vote.
    but you know where the wind is blowing on DU, eh?

    As far as I have ever been able to tell, that's basically all the time.

    Nixon resigned August 9, 1974. McCain first entered politics in 1981 in the House of Representatives. McCain couldn't have been on Nixon's "Enemies List" without a time machine.

    Pitt, like all the other DUmmies, should learn to research before putting 'pen to paper'.

    I thought he was talking about Kerry, not McCain. Am I missing something here?

    Kerry was a congressional candidate in 1972, but lost and dropped out of national politics. He stayed in local politics until 1982.

    McCain? Kerry? Macht nicht. Pitt still needs to do a better job researching his topics.
