Negative character attacks ineffective

For months the Bush campaign has been spending millions to paint John Kerry as a flip-flopper. But anyone who saw Kerry's speech at the Democratic Convention should be able to see right through those attacks.

Throughout his life, John Kerry has always stood up for what was right, whether it was popular or not. He is a strong man, a man of integrity and a man of character. Negative character attacks can only work if we can't see the truth for ourselves. But anyone who truly listened to Kerry's speech knows that he speaks the truth loud and clear.

John Kerry will restore respect, honor and credibility to the White House.
