Understanding The Election

Lawrence Kaplan's New Republic take on Kerry and his Convention address is anything but admiring. But Kaplan notes one aspect of the speech that shows that despite all the foreign affairs trimmings at the Convention and the media fixation on the issue, and despite all the Vietnam imagery, Senator Kerry fully appreciates where this election will be won or lost:

Indeed, [John Kerry] spent far more time discussing domestic policy than he spent discussing foreign and defense policy.

Exactly so. Got that? John Kerry understands. That's why John Edwards is the running mate. That's why so many other things, too.

It's still the economy, stupid!
