(I’m referring to Rich’s 8:18 am post.) I don’t see why Bush couldn’t have said something along these lines: “Far from being a setback to our campaign to keep rogue states from going nuclear, developing low-yield nuclear weapons is an indispensable part of that campaign. We have to be able to hit weapons they’ve hidden underground. And we have to have an option between dropping a big bomb and doing nothing. John Kerry is letting his knee-jerk left-wing instincts get in the way of national security here.” How hard was that?
