The New York Times > Washington > Campaign 2004 > Kerry Says He Would Clear the Air With U.S. Allies:
"When one man asked if it was realistic to think that a new president could begin anew in the Middle East, Mr. Kerry responded, 'I believe it will take a new president of the United States to clear the air, to re-establish American credibility in the world and to be able to reach out to leaders not just in the Middle East but all over the world.'"
Seriously, this is an excellent article. John Kerry is saying all the right stuff - he is almost as hard on the administration as he should be. I'm impressed.
