John Kerry please listen. You can win this thing. The Democratic Party is historically and presently petrified of appearing to be weak on defense. You can fix this. You can be the antiwar candidate. Step up and say the Iraq war, like Vietnam before it, is morally and strategically plain wrong. Say you were right to criticize the Vietnam War when you did–that you’re just as proud of your informed dissent as you are of your service in the Navy. Say if you want to mire our nation in another imperialist quagmire, while leaving the homeland open to attack, vote for Bush. If you want peace and prosperity vote for me.
