The problem with Kerry's message may not be Kerry's fault at all. I think the tough possition Kerry is in is that at least 1/2 of his supporters are dead set against the War in Iraq. So if Kerry comes out and says anything besides quick pull out of Iraq he will piss off half his base.

Kerry is in a very difficult position. If he comes off in the debates as a hawk the anti-war left could stay home or vote for Nadar. If he comes off as a dove he gets the anti-war left but may lose a lot of those in the middle.

He is in a very tricky position.

speaking of Iraq and Joe Klein, I think this is an interesting piece: (feel free to agree or disagree, just another piece to throw into the mix)



Talk about burning bridges and allienating our allies:

John Kerry, today,

"Shortly after Allawi, the interim government's prime minister, gave a rosy portrayal of progress toward peace in Iraq, Kerry said the assessment contradicted reality on the ground.

``The prime minister and the president are here obviously to put their best face on the policy, but the fact is that the CIA estimates, the reporting, the ground operations and the troops all tell a different story,'' Kerry said. "

So know Kerry knows better what is going on in Iraq then Iraq's Prime Minister. What the hell is Kerry talking about that the troops are telling a different story. The troops are giving the most accurate, positive view of what is going on on the ground because they are all over the country. What the hell do the reporters know they are confined to safe zones.

Way to go Kerry, blast the prime minister of Iraq and say he doesn't know what he is talking about.
