Congratulations......

I wonder though what this has to do with the track record I have brought up.

Kerry's influence on Foreign Policy as President increases if he wins. I think his record of inconsistency and partisanship on the issue fue to politics, as Solome points out, is quite telling.

For me, his vote in 1991 verses his votes when a Democrat was in office, verses his vote when he decided to run for President tell volumes about the man.

On a side note, I am thinking of my children and thank goodness I am.

I find that troubling. How can one claim to be thinking of the interests of the country, when he has a pattern of clearly partisan votes. The inconsistency is there.

One of the things I appreciate about a McCain or a Lieberman is that they have the intestinal fortitude to go against the party line.

Dread, you make very good points - but I don't see Bush as being stronger in this area. I think Bush is making a mistake by alienating us from other countries and that doesn't make me feel safer.

I agree BostonAnne. Bush has seriously damaged our alliances, and this is not very smart. Turkey is historically a U.S. ally but Bush has really pissed off alot of Turkish politicians lately. The Prime Minister isn't talking, he's way too diplomatic, but God knows what he thinks. For the record, the Turks are *not* Arabs. Turks are a completely different ethnic group, originally from Central Asia. They ended up in their present homeland as a result of political pressures further east.

Even though this doesn't speak directly to how Kerry has voted, I can't help but wonder how many former democrats flipped over to the republican side when the political winds blew in that direction, as compared to dem's flopping over to rep's. Seem's I have read a great deal about party flip-flopping lately.
Anyway, I change my mind all the time. For most people this doesn't mean they don't have convictions, they just changed the way they felt about something initially.
I just don't feel Dubya & Co. look at situations objectively, or not enough. IMO
