John Kerry Hits a Home Run


About | Huff | Obama Diary | TALKING POINTS | Way of Abba | Longevity

John Kerry’s speech in Denver should not fall through the cracks because it may be the best collection of statements that can, if used, win this thing this time around.

Kerry offers a precise description of Barack’s strengths and McCain’s weaknesses. He distinguishes tellingly between the old McCain and candidate McCain. He shows that candidate McCain is nothing but a mesmerized messenger dispensing the poison that is being distributed by his Rovian handlers.

Kerry’s speach touches all the bases and in a convention with many high moments, it should not be lost in the shuffle.

Give it a listen.
