Kerry getting there, one very slow, very awkward step at a time

From AP:
"We should not have gone into Iraq knowing today what we know," Kerry told ABC. "Knowing there was no imminent threat to America, knowing there were no weapons of mass destruction, knowing there was no connection between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein, I would not have voted to support war."
Good going, John! Seriously! You have finally realized that being a flip-flopper is preferable to being a stubborn stay-the-course ignoramus, something you have no chance of beating Bush on anyway.

Now John, just because those of us who haven't jumped on your bandwagon have finally gotten you to go this far, don't expect us to jump gleefully on now. First off, we're wondering how we can trust someone who defended his vote last month, already knowing those three things, when the only thing that has changed since then are the poll numbers. Secondly, we still have to wonder about either your intelligence or your integrity if you EVER seriously believed that Iraq was an imminent threat to America or that there was a connection between 9/11 and Saddam. Even the WMD stuff was clearly questionable two years ago, but the "threat" and the 9/11 connection were clearly bogus. You didn't ever really believe that crap, did you John? I guess right now I'm hoping that it's your integrity that's lacking, and not your intelligence. Nobody with integrity gets this far in politics, but brainiacs like Carter and Clinton are somewhat preferable to morons like Reagan and Bush.

Most importantly, John, is what are you going to do about it? Now that you finally say that you would have voted against the war, does that mean that you now recognize it as illegal? And doesn't that mean that you should END IT, not try to drag some accomplices in on it for appearances?
