Howard Kurtz does a good job outlining the trouble some Democrat presidential candidates may have with their votes in support of Bush’s position on Iraq. This situation is similar to one I discussed recently–a truism of presidential campaigning–that you win primaries on the wings and the general election in the middle. This might present one of the Democrats with a good opportunity to forego prognosticating and maneuvering based on an imperfect understanding of a war’s potential effects and stick to principle (whatever that may be).
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
