I am glad Dean is no longer subject to the awful attacks, which would only have gotten worse. I hope he learns from this experience and pops up again, maybe as a member of Kerry's cabinet.
Kerry, from everything I have seen and read, is an honorable man. I don't see him backpedaling or apologizing for statements that need no apology. He seems straightforward. He has also done a lot behind the scenes, work that isn't normally obvious to those of us who only notice who sponsors a bill. His investigative work is especially notable and shows his character. I feel good about supporting him now.
