Kerry to take advantages of soldiers' mothers' grief

According to "top Democrats" Kerry is going to go after Bush on Iraq starting tomorrow. CNN reports:

Mothers of U.S. troops serving in Iraq will help Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry make the case Monday that President Bush's optimistic view of the war does not reflect reality, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe said Sunday.

We'll have to wait and see how this plays out, but I don't think I'm too far off the mark when I say this is going to backfire on Kerry. How much more desperate can he look than when he has to march out the mothers of some soldiers to denounce the president? People have been saying that Edwards is taking a backseat in this campaign, but this move smells like something a trial lawyer would try to pull.

This is just a "heads-up" story for now. We'll all just have to wait and see what the Bush campaign's response to this will be tomorrow. My suggestion: "Hey John, how did you explain to those mothers your vote against money for body armor?"
