Who appeared in this episode?
John Kerry: You know, this president likes to talk about how I called the war in Iraq "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time;" that a few days later, how I said that anyone who doesn't think the world is a safer place without Saddam Hussein is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief. But what he doesn't tell you is that when I denounced the war in Iraq, I was speaking to an anti-war group, and when I endorsed the war, I was addressing a pro-war delegation from the U.G.A. The fact of the matter is, I have consistently supported the war in front of pro-war audiences and condemned it in front of groups that oppose it. That is not flip-flopping, that is pandering, and America deserves a president who knows the difference.
