Kerry's Running Mate

Kerry Attacked Edwards' Maturity And Experience; 'When I Came Back From Vietnam — I Don't Know If John Edwards Was Out Of Diapers Then.' "'In the Senate four years — and that is the full extent of public life — no international experience, no military experience, you can imagine what the advertising is going to be next year,' Mr. Kerry said. With a grin, he added: 'When I came back from Vietnam in 1969 I don't know if John Edwards was out of diapers then. Well, I'm sure he was out of diapers.'" (Adam Nagourney and Jim Rutenberg, "With Hopes Up And Elbows Out, Democrats Give Iowa Their All," The New York Times, 1/19/04)

Kerry Attacked Edwards' Experience. "'I think the American people want an experienced hand at the helm of state,' said Kerry, who has spent 19 years in the Senate compared with Edwards' five. 'This is not the time for on-the-job training in the White House on national security issues.'" (Mark Z. Barabak, "Diverse States May Reshape The Democratic Race Today," Los Angeles Times, 2/3/04)

Kerry Blasted Edwards' 'Lack Of Military And Foreign Policy Experience.' "Kerry took aim at Edwards's lack of military and foreign policy experience while responding to Edwards's comment that both candidates shared similar plans to rebuild Iraq. 'Well, I think he would like it to be that way,' said Kerry, a decorated veteran, 'but I think I have 35 years of experience in international security, foreign policy, and military affairs, and I think that makes an enormous difference here. I think that the world is looking for leadership that is tested and sure.'" (Raja Mishra, "Edwards And Kerry Emphasize Contrasts," The Boston Globe, 2/23/04)

Kerry Mocked Edwards' "Ambitious" Nature After Only One Term In Elective Office. "The veteran senator also questioned the former trial lawyer's pursuit of the presidency after less than one term in elective office. 'And people call me ambitious?' a Globe reporter once overheard Kerry asking an aide." (Glen Johnson, "Once a Rival, Edwards Staying Close to Kerry," The Boston Globe, 6/10/04)
