Steve Green over at VodkaPundit calls this particular NY Times Op-Ed Piece "Required Reading". Normally I agree a lot with our vodka drinking friend. I could have done without this particular column. The whole thing can be summed with one of two sentences depending on your leaning.
My particular take: He doesn't stand for anything, but that's a good thing.
Someone more left than I would say: He stands for everything, and that's a good thing.
Take this particular excerpt:
You may read that and laugh... saying why would I vote for this person? That's what I said at least, until you go down two more paragraph's and read:
Is the fact that I still don't know which of these two things Kerry is after all this campaigning really an answer to that question? The man has had all this time to define his campaign. He's been out speaking to the people for months both during the primaries, and leading up to the convention, and we still don't know where he stands. He has simply been saying whatever you want to hear to get you to come to his side. What scares me is that I may not like what I find in January if he is standing at the podium come inaguration day. What scares me even more is that I know I won't know what we will have gotten if he's elected until that day.
Either way, this particular column was not a stunning revelation, just one more person saying that Kerry flip-flops.
