Kerry has the opportunity to lead a movement once again... by rallying a very angry public to force a change in policy. Richard Nixon worried about Kerry's potential as a leader back in the 70s; maybe the new Kerry will finally prove him right.

John Kerry came to national attention not because he was a war hero but because he was a dissenter. In 1971, he appeared on "The Dick Cavett Show," testified before Congress, and electrified anti-war rallies with his message that the war was wrong. His phrase, "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" was used for years to define his commitment and eloquence.

The left is so out of touch.

Most people DESPITE being frustrated over the war know that "quitting" isnt an option. By all means democrats..stand up for cutting an running..The GOP needs all the help it can get for 06.

I missed it in the article. What was, is or will be the his "plan?" How is what he is doing different or new? What did Nixon have to do with it again? Dissent is patriotism? Is that the point of the article? Since Kerry is finally and completely dissenting, he is "more" patriotic than he was during the presidential race?

Very patriotic!

"I regret that I have but one vote to give to keep dims out of office!!!"

"Ask not what your party can do for you, but what you can do to defeat democrats!!!"

"Democrats, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!"

John Kerry is a broken electronic clock, and he's flashing 88:88, so actually his broken clock isn't right twice a day.

"Kerry has the opportunity to lead a movement once again..."

And be fatally wrong once again, too.
