Kerry-Edwards interview

This is the Wasington Post story on the interview it conducted with both Kerry and Edwards in New Mexico yesterday. And here are excerpts from the interview. I guess we are going to have an election on character and "values." The
impression one has in reading both articles is that Kerry is less interested in
distancing himself from the Michael Moore-goofy-Left-crowd than he should. Kerry claims that voters are "clamoring for restoration of credibility and trust in the White House again." Also: "The value of truth is one of the most central values in America, and this administration has violated" it, Kerry said in an interview with The Washington Post aboard the Democrats’ campaign plane Friday. "Their values system is distorted and not based on truth." Both pieces merit study, and should be filed for later reference.

"Their values system is distorted and not based on truth."

I applaude the Democrats for taking this tact. With wagging finger pointed at the GOP, three fingers are pointed directly back at ’em. As Bush might say, "Bring ’em on!"

The guys at Powerline have a pretty interesting take on this interview. Since there’s not much in the way of comments here, will copy all (really not that much, don’t want to violate commenting rules)

Not Even the Post Can Swallow That One

The Washington Post conducted an airborne interview with John Kerry and John Edwards. It isn’t particularly revealing, but I thought this commentary was amusing:

With their ties loosened and shoes kicked off, the Democratic duo also vowed to forgo negative advertising in this presidential campaign -- an assertion that draws scoffs from Republicans who note that independent Democratic groups have pounded the president with millions of dollars in negative ads.
"We have not stood up and attacked our opponents in personal ways," Kerry said.

This week alone, Kerry has criticized Bush personally in speeches for lying, professional laziness, waiting until right before the election to indict Enron Corp.’s former chief executive, Kenneth L. Lay, lacking values and even having worse hair than the two Democrats. Some advisers are privately counseling Kerry to tone down his attacks on Bush.


Not even the Post can stomach Kerry’s absurd claim that he is taking the high road in the campaign.
