The Senator and the Candidate

Some of these convention speeches have been wiffle ball (gawd, can you believe Mark Warner was an early favorite in this thing?). But John Kerry is through messing around:

"Talk about being for it before you were against it!"

Seriously; talk about Senator _____ vs. Candidate _____ --> whether McCain or Kerry.

Kerry had one brilliant moment as a campaigner, in his first debate with George W Bush on foreign policy. (I wrote a very early blog post about it.) He brought that kind of game again to this speech. When Dukakis lost in 1988, he basically went away. Thank goodness that John Kerry and Al Gore haven't gone away.
