The Republicans say you do not have a record of accomplishment or distinction in the US Senate. Your campaign vigorously denies this. And yet, in your announcement speech, in your convention biographical film, your convention speech, in your ads and in your last debate with president Bush you have never cited a single major piece of legislation that you’ve authored in 20 years of serving in the Senate. Why is that? What were you doing in the Senate for 20 years and why shouldn’t we look at your record as a public servent as a better indication of what kind of President you’d make than your four months in combat in Vietnam?
