The Long View

I caught Douglas Brinkley in an interview on C-Span today talking about John Kerry. He came across as a truly legitimate historian whose primary interest was getting the facts right regardless of where the chips fall. And despite the criticisms and distortions that have been made about Tour of Duty, the record of Kerry's heroism and leadership in the face of combat remains a solid one. Furthermore that record is completely consistent with everything John has done since. In total it is a worthy record of a worthy man.
