  •  But one Kerry can exploit if he's careful. (none)
    I agree, agree, agree on it being a trap.  I disagree on Bush being any good at anything, but I think his handlers laid a good land mine here for exactly the reasons you outlined.

    Kerry can use it if he can link it to his own themes.  It's great intro material.

    He can use it to highlite the chimp's already low credability marks, dent the 'straight talking' meme (ooh, kind of a pun there :)), and quickly link it to other topics, especially failure to secure stockpiles in Iraq.

    The answer is November 2nd; Phrase your question carefully

    •  Well said (none)
      But I stand by the statement of Bush's political cunning.  In Texas, when he as gov, he pulled a very similar move just before the election on the issue of a nuke dump.  He sided against the dump and made much political capital from it...
