And we should vote for you because...

I have to conclude that this just about does it for Kerry:
Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry conceded yesterday that he probably will not be able to convince France and Germany to contribute troops to Iraq if he is elected president.

The Massachusetts senator has made broadening the coalition trying to stabilize Iraq a centerpiece of his campaign, but at a town hall meeting yesterday, he said he knows other countries won't trade their soldiers' lives for those of U.S. troops.

As I explained here and confirmed here, Kerry’s 4-step “plan” for Iraq consists of three steps that Bush has already taken plus the fantasy that he can get France and Germany to send troops. He now admits that he can’t deliver on that promise, so what’s left?
