I finally got my copy of the book over the weekend. I've been reading it and I wanted to point out a part that I think shows Kerry for the kind of person he really is. We keep hearing about how Kerry is opportunistic and doesn't care who he tramples over to get what he wants, and I think this really brings it to light. If you haven't read the book and don't want a spoiler, then don't read the stuff below, otherwise read on.

John O'Neill talks about a "Swiftee" reunion that took place in the Summer of 2003. They gathered to share stories and remember their friends who didn't make it back home. Here's what O'Neill say about Kerry and that reunion.
"Kerry made a cameo appearance accompanied by a film crew and a corps of directors and assistants at an earlier outdoor event. Pushing aside various Swiftiees, Kerry ignored many of his fellow Swiftees. He placed himself front and center for the shot, pushing aside Swiftiees like Jack Chenoweth, an officer and one of the true heroes of the 'Rassmann' incident. One of Kerry's political aides singled out some Swiftees to participate in his video. Most declined. After filming the cameo and allowing one or two snapshots to be taken dockside, Kerry and his entourage disappeared, not bothering to attend a memorial service for the Swiftees who had died in Vietnam"

Okay, you can read now. If you don't have this book, you really need to pick it up. I'm only still in Part 1, but if Kerry really is the kind of person that these "Swiftees" say he is, then he's a bigger ass than Clinton ever could be.
