Turning the Boat Around?
Another beautiful day in New York City--and some interesting rumblings in the presidential race. John Kerry gave what sounds like a pretty kick-ass speech at NYU earlier today, directly taking on Bush's Iraq disaster a day after Republican Senators Lugar, McCain and Hagel did the same on the Sunday morning talk shows. Judging from the reaction of the folks at Daily Kos, the left blogosphere is beside itself: finally it feels like someone is speaking some truth.

At the same time, CBS has conceded that it shouldn't have run those memos about Bush's National Guard tenure--even though the content of the memos apparently remains unchallenged. It will be very interesting to see which of these stories--pertaining to this war, or the last one--gets more press play tonight and tomorrow morning.
