Kerry, in an attempt to further drive a wedge between Bush and the NAACP:

“I will be a president who truly is a uniter, not one who seeks to divide our nation by race, riches or any other label.”

But who’s the one using the class labels?

And again with the magic wand!! Kerry thinks that the UN is willing to just fall in line to help Sudan out of a sense of morality, I guess:

Kerry called for the United States, with the UN, to lead an ''international humanitarian intervention" in Sudan's war-torn region of Darfur, where Arab militias have been killing and displacing villagers, driving some into neighboring Chad.

I’m reminded of this opposition regarding a resolution we wanted to put through the Security Council (and this map).  Kerry, ignoring the actions that the administration has taken, blames Bush for ignoring the problem though the US is the only major power to send a high ranking official there. Kofi had to scramble to get over there in time to have a photo op with Powell.

Going back to the uniter-not-a-divider/we-need-to-respect-our-allies business, Steyn recently made a good point: the protectionist trade policies of Kerry/Edwards are bound to alienate our friends more than liberating Iraq could ever hope to. The Bush steel tariff ordeal was just a whiff of what such policies will do to our relationships.
