RJ Eskrow has an excellent piece on John Kerry on the HuffingtonPost.com
The road to Kerry's call began with my first blogging effort, the day after the 2004 election. That sparked an email exchange that led to his phone call a few hours later. Our conversation included some new insights into Colin Powell's role in Kerry's war vote, Bin Laden's impact on the election, and the Joe Lieberman Rose Garden moment that changed the road to war.
Kerry's answer was to call me and reiterate - emphatically - that no such meeting took place, and that his vote was based on judgment, not expediency. He insists he would never send soldiers to war against his conscience, and I believe him.
"I appreciate your willingness to be forthright, to talk about what you wrote," Kerry said, "but there's something more important than that, which is that we look to the future, not the past. That's what I'm concentrating on now - ending this war. My vote for the war resolution has been misinterpreted, but I don't want that to stand in the way of what I'm doing now."
The entire piece is excellent. It paints a clearer picture of a man of integrity, conviction and honor.
I want this man for my President.
I've got your back, John Kerry!
