Humphrey-Nixon Redux

Stephen Zunes writes:

Despite his public support for the Vietnam War, Humphrey appeared personally torn and troubled by his position; within a year of his defeat, he finally came out against it. Kerry may very likely be harboring similar doubts about the war in Iraq, particularly given his Vietnam experience. Perhaps that's why I – along with many others, I think – feel the same kind of bitterness and anger toward Kerry that I did as a young teenager toward Humphrey, thinking: "Why the hell doesn't he just admit he was wrong and come out against the war?"
