Response to Kerry ignored McCain's advice on Vietnam...
This is going to be a Hair Match with not just the Swiftees, but every Viet vet. The Swiftees won't back down and they now have a bunch of money. Last I heard they had raised several million in the last two weeks. Average donation $59.00. The next round of ads will shift to Kerry's 1971 testimony and he's dead in the water with no defense against his own words. The rest of the vets are going to remember the scorn they got when they came home and Kerry is going to get blame for being a cause of that. The boomers can re-fight this, but I think something that's overlooked is the vast number of voters born after Vietnam. The 20 and 30 somethings don't give a flip about the old arguments, but I think they do understand supporting the troops and will recognize the line Kerry crossed over.
