Kerry stands up

Nice to see on the NYT Op-ed page, in front of Bush's Iraq speech. Gives me hope that Kerry won't fade to black like Gore did. Check out The Speech the President Should Give

TONIGHT President Bush will discuss the situation in Iraq. It's long past time to get it right in Iraq. The Bush administration is courting disaster with its current course - a course with no realistic strategy for reducing the risks to our soldiers and increasing the odds for success.

Ok, so the middle of the piece was written with a shotgun. But hey, he doesn't get to make the full-length speech. And he hits his targets more often than not.
The next months are critical to Iraq's future and our security. If Mr. Bush fails to take these steps, we will stumble along, our troops at greater risk, casualties rising, costs rising, the patience of the American people wearing thin, and the specter of quagmire staring us in the face. Our troops deserve better: they deserve leadership equal to their sacrifice.

And unfortunately, they won't be getting that any time soon.
