This has to be a record -- I don't think that even Howard Dean reversed himself this quickly. Here's John Kerry during tonight's debate:
Democrats debating each other Thursday night accused President Bush of proposing a constitutional amendment against gay marriage to distract voters from more important issues such as the economy.
"He's trying to divide America," said Sen. John Kerry . "This is a president who always tries to create a cultural war and seek the lowest common denominator of American politics because he can't come to America and talk about jobs, he can't talk to America about health care because he doesn't have a plan."
Here's John Kerry yesterday in an interview with the Boston Globe:
In his most explicit remarks on the subject yet, Kerry told the Globe that he would support a proposed amendment to the state Constitution that would prohibit gay marrriage so long as, while outlawing gay marriage, it also ensured that same-sex couples have access to all legal rights that married couples receive.
Now one can argue that there is a difference between backing a federal Constitutional amendment and one at a state level, but that's not what Kerry argued during the debate. Instead, he accused Bush of opposing gay marriage as a way to "create a cultural war" to distract Americans ... while he opposes it too, but for altruistic reasons, one supposes. After all, it's all about motivation.
Kerry should base his entire campaign in this fashion. He can argue that he'll take exactly the same actions as Bush, but he just won't be eeeeeevillll. He might have a better shot at winning in November.Sphere It View blog reactions
