Kerry's Press Conference: I'm watching it right now, and Shakespeare comes to mind, specifically Macbeth:
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
I can't wait to see a transcript of this, because listening to Kerry actually speak could be used as an anesthetic in hospitals for major surgery.
*UPDATE* OK, first Kerry says that the war in Iraq is a distraction from the war on terror which is in Afghanistan is all about capturing Osama bin Laden. Then, just a few minutes later on the subject of Iraq says:
I made it clear, we must succeed. We must succeed for the war on terror. We must succeed for our troops who've put their lives on the line. We must succeed for the future.
Is Iraq part of the war on terror? Yes or no? It seems that for Kerry it can be yes and no simultaneously -- depending on what point he'd like to make.
