I suspect this will be on the news (alphabet networks) tonight and will pass as a tempest in a teapot. I really don't disagree with anything you say about it. It's just when I saw the post I had one of those sinking feelings. It is the press's attempt to draw moral equivalency between the last two administrations. I hate to see that happen because of how cynical that is. My opinion certainly isn't changed by this. I worry some about the casual news listener who may think this is more important than Kerry's absenteeism from the Senate, his multiple positions on an issue, and the like.
I see your point. If it weren't this, it would be something else, though. The media has gone into full DNC mode, and it is to be expected.
Don't lose heart. I am convinced the more the public sees of Kerry, the more they will dislike him.

Unfortunately, they do that with pretty much anything that sounds vaguely like something Clinton did. It is impossible to completely avoid this comparison - but what can be done is to be aware of it, and to have the facts at hand to refute it.
