    John Kerry is not on the democratic ticket in 2008. John McCain is.

    His record is open to public scrutiny big time. He's the one who claims his cleanliness is next to godliness.

    Good reply Matclone.
    The thing I found most disgusting about the Swiftboaters was their ability to turn the tables on Kerry where he had to defend his war record which took the spotlight off Bush.
    Whatever Kerry did and whether or not he deserved those medals, he was in Viet Nam serving in combat areas risking his life.
    George Bush was not. There is nothing immoral or dishonorable about the National Guard. I am sure I would have done something similar to stay out of Viet Nam if I was in teh same situation, but comparing their war records to each other, Kerry surely should not have been attacked.

    Thanks, ODH. Yes, you make a point, the salient point, I intended to make, but didn't. Kerry was in the combat zone, putting his life on the line. To attack that service as somehow deficient (especially since he served honorably) is a slap in the face to all veterans.

    And why Kerry never fought back against the "support the troops" hypocrites is a question that will never have an acceptable answer. All he had to do was stick up for himself and he may have won.
