I thought John Kerry had done all the damage he could do to the Democratic Party in 2004.
Now he insists on being the “cut and run” face of the Democratic Party on Iraq. He angered even fellow Senate Democrats by calling for pulling out this year.
Kerry was for the war before he was against it, you will remember.
He learned one lesson from 2004: He let Howard Dean steal the antiwar wing of the party from him. He’ll never let that happen again.
Unfortunately, he may take the whole party down with him this year.
Some of my Democratic friends are mad at me about this. One told me this week: “This isn’t helping Bush. His favorable rating is up only a tick – to maybe 31 percent.”
That’s right. But that’s not the point. Bush won’t be on the ballot – not ever again.
What may be up for a national referendum this fall is the Democratic position on Iraq (cut and run) versus the Republican position (we oppose retreat and defeat).
If that happens – I believe – Democrats lose.
