Thanks. It was like that when I double checked it, so I assumed that space was supposed to be there, AND my computer is being a stinker these days. I didn't try removing it, duh.
Gosh, I don't know if I can explain the point.
I thought it was worth keeping all eyes open (always) and this article referenced the DEM strategy with Kerry was to keep all eyes ON SWPVT and off his senate record. Of course, it backfired. IMHO. I'd never actually seen that in print before and thought it was worth noting.
There had been some discussion about Murtha's medal question being a trap, which implies some sort of strategy. If that strategy is to blame Republicans for questioning it, what's new? Republicans get blamed for the sun coming up. For various reasons I, personally, don't have any inclination the medals are a trap to re-start another/same argument over another set of medals.
That said, (remember I like to keep all eyes open) IF it is a trap, I would think the more likely explanation is that he's in even deeper with the ethics issues than has been reported.
Does that make sense?
