Margaret Warner on the News Hour just noted something I've been saying all week: all the speakers talk about John Kerry's four months in Vietnam but say virtually nothing about his twenty years in the Senate.

Now Jim Lehrer is asking Mark Shields why the Democrats aren't talking about Kerry's Senate career.  His response: "Because it's slim pickings."  Nice!

David Brooks: "John Kerry's Senate career stands in contrast to this convention" - that is, the DNC is "hawkish" while Kerry's voting record indicate that he's voted against defense and intelligence programs over and over again.

Am I missing something here... Are the same liberals that swear Kerry's Vietnam service is the defining, necessary atribute of a qualified, competent and necessary President people who sat on the lawns of Berkeley and spit upon our soldiers returning from Vietnam in the first place?
