Bush Is No Kennedy

"It’s hard for me to listen to President Bush invoking my father’s memory to attack John Kerry. Senator Kerry has demonstrated his courage and commitment to a stronger America throughout his entire career. President Kennedy inspired and united the country and so will John Kerry. President Bush is doing just the opposite. All of us who revere the strength and resolve of President Kennedy will be supporting John Kerry on Election Day."

– Caroline Kennedy (according to Willis).

For those of you wondering what this is about, Bush has been invoking President Kennedy (and FDR) in his recent speeches, making implicit comparisons and suggesting that Bush (as opposed to Kerry) has the same courage of his convictions as those earlier Presidents.
