Democratic Debate

February 27th, 2004

Just watching it on CNN now. I’m taping it and will comment on it more later. But I just wanted to say one thing: Kerry is impressive here. He just gave a reply to the question, “do you regret voting to give the president approval in the war in Iraq?” (That’s the essence, not a direct quote.) His answer was great. He didn’t hem or haw, but replied with a definite, almost definitive, “NO.” He pointed out that Congress forced Bush to agree to three things in getting that approval, that being to build a true global coalition, to respect the U.N.’s weapons inspection process, and to go to war as a last resort–and that he violated every one of those promises. An excellent argument, as a war in Iraq under those conditions would have been more acceptable (and probably would not have happened), but Kerry was as impressive in how he said it. He is coming across as very forceful, very passionate though very measured, and very presidential.

    A comment on Kerry – he is one of the key figures in the corrupt, multi-billion dollar mafia funding scheme aka the Big Dig (Boston). Why have heads not rolled over this?

    I thought Kucinich and Sharpton really got the shit treatment from Larry King and the others. Just about every question asked of Kucinich was “why are you still in the race” and “when are you going to drop out.” When they did ask him a real question, Larry King and that lady from the LA Times started talking to each other and ignored him.

    It’s such a self-fulfilling prophecy. If all you do is ignore a candidate and be rude to them like that, most people will ignore them.
