Another reason to vote for Kerry

As if it were needed. Link:
"A leader who's determined, for domestic political purposes, to insist that everything is okay simply won't be able to impress upon world opinion the necessity of doing something to stabilize the country. And a leader who keeps insisting that everything is okay, contradicting everyone who's looked at the matter impartially, is only going to see his credibility worsen and worsen. And fundamentally that lack of credibility will destroy -- and has been destroying -- any attempt by the current administration to secure international cooperation on Iraq or any other issue. The United States is the most powerful actor in world affairs, but no leader in his right mind would make himself a junior partner in a cooperative venture with a president who can't be trusted to tell the truth or to follow through competently on his undertakings."
