Hawkish Kerry

The National Review has an excellent summary on the recent rightward shift John Kerry is taking.


I like this quote:

The end result is that Kerry has ended up selling himself as what John Hillen, director of the Program on National Security at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, calls, "Bush Lite...a set of light, stylistic differences."

This is actually smart on Kerry's part. He is doing exactly what he needs to do, he is moving to the center and attempting to outflank Bush on the war effort. Notice that there is no more "Quagmire" crap coming out of the Democratic leader.

This quote is also good:

"In the long term, a Kerry administration would be not that radically different from the Bush administration," Boot said. "Anyone expecting a different set of core tenets of American foreign policy is going to be inevitably disappointed."

Phhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh to the Anti-liberation activists.
