You Can't Pick and Choose
The Kerry Spot has this to say today:
The irony here is that a main reason Mr. Kerry has focused so much on Vietnam is to avoid debating Iraq and the rest of his long record in the Senate. He wants Americans to believe that a four-month wartime biography is credential enough to be commander-in-chief. But a candidate who runs on biography can't merely pick the months of his life that he likes — any more than a candidate who makes Vietnam the heart of his campaign can confine the resulting debate to his personal home video.
