A vote for Kerry is a vote for...

In 1995, Kerry was one of 29 senators who voted against lifting an arms embargo on Bosnia. He argued the congressional action was unacceptably unilateral and had not been coordinated with European allies. Kerry, in this instance, supported the view of the Clinton administration, but he did not automatically provide his support, according to a White House official involved in legislative strategy on the vote.

While I disagreed with the Yugoslav campaigns on reasons of inconsistency with American Security interests, I respected the efforts of the Clinton Administration to stop another ethnic cleansing in Europe along Europe's sectarian fault lines. However, alot of insight as to what a vote for Kerry is really about:

A vote for Kerry is a vote for unsound isolationism. Thank you.
