Kerry v. Ashcroft on Civil Rights

Foreign policy aside, at least we can count on Kerry's long history of supporting civil rights as a contrast to the Bush administration.

Right[1]?


fn1. Isn't this another case of "he voted for it before he voted against it"? It is becoming apparent that much of the 'nuance' of John Kerry boils down to whether or not a democrat was in office when a particular bill was proposed (for Kerry, the idea of PATRIOT with Reno was fantastic; with Ashcroft, it's suddenly a dystopian nightmare bill)... Ahh, mais oui, c'est vrai n'est-ce pas?
