The oxymoron for the 21st Century.
That came to me as I was watching the repeat of Kerry's Meet The Press interview on CNBC.
I wanteds to write more on that today - but I'm not gong to have time. Instead I'll do it tomorrow when it's even staler news.
But, I will say, he left me feeling better about my vote for him in November. Kerry spoke - among other things, his stump talking points. But he sounded better in that setting than he does on stage shoutng it. He hemmed and hawed very little. He was clear.
People who criticize him generally do not understand that indeed he could not answer some of Russert's questions definitevly because circumstances do change. I would accept this answer from Bush if he followed up, as Kerry did for the most part, with answerig the questrion with this proviso.
He's weakest moment, though? After Russert played Kerry's grave words - first aired April 18, 1971 (nice symmetry by the way since this MTP session was April 18, 2004) about atrocities, Kerry's initial comeback was that he wondered where all his dark hair had gone.
Clearly he was playing for a little bit of time, but not appropriate. It was a clanger for me.
Lastly, this was live and not scripted and edited like Bush's effort. Bring on the debates.
