The Democrats have got to characterize the invasion of Iraq as a personal, crazed adventure promoted by these two mad executives and their ideological cronies. We've lost more than 550 soldiers, wounded 3,000 more, and now we're losing civilians, well-meaning Americans who want only peace but are met by violent reaction to our policies. We've wasted billions of dollars, wasted our standing in the world and our domestic economy.
This is intolerable and must be highlighted by Kerry's publicists. He can't win unless he is able to paint Bush/Cheney (always connecting the two, so that Bush is dragged down by Cheney) as out-of-the-loop madmen.
