Dennis Roddy, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “At the time the first George Bush was still flush with victory in the Persian Gulf, and dinnergoers chortled over a videotaped presentation of assorted Senate Democrats backpedaling in the wake of a war they’d opposed. Ted Kennedy was shown. News clips were shown. But for Kerry, the speaker simply read the two letters, to everyone’s amazement. ‘It’s like those before-and-after pictures they print in the papers,’ the speaker said. ‘If they didn’t tell you so themselves, you’d think they were different people.'”
The guy giving the speech was Senator John Heinz, Republican of Pennsylvania ? who died in a plane crash two weeks later leaving to his widow Teresa free to marry Kerry in 1995. Amazing. That is an incredible, creepy coincidence.
