the "L" word?

Excerpted from RealClearPolitics:

"Democrats are free to question Bush's record as harshly as they want. It is well within bounds for them to say that Bush compounded bad intelligence with bad judgment on Iraq. What they shouldn't be able to say without being rebuked by the media and the public, however, is that this President deliberately misled the country on the issue of Iraq and that 1,000 US soldiers are dead because Bush lied.

That hasn't happened. In fact, we seem to be rapidly headed in the other direction. I fully expect John Kerry to call President Bush the "l" word within the next 55 days. It's looking more and more like Kerry's only hope is to go nuclear against the war in Iraq and against the President personally."

Anyone else think Kerry will do it? I think it's a distinct possibility, given that Kerry has painted himself into a corner on both Iraq and Vietnam, which both fall under the heading "national security." To get out of this corner, I think he'll do something drastic, like drop the "L" word, and use the diversion that this bombshell will cause to begin talking to the MSM again, hoping that the MSM will focus on his attack on Bush instead of on Kerry's skeletons that all got exposed in August.

The general rule on Kerry: if he thinks it will help win the election, he will do it. Kerry's whole reason for living is be elected president; rememeber, he was born in the west wing of the hospital.
