Heinz Kerry Says Bush Reelection Would Be "Hell" For The Country
The Washington Post reports this morning, "A week ago she told a writer from a Pittsburgh newspaper to 'shove it,' and on Monday night the never-bashful Teresa Heinz Kerry offered up another attention-getting line, saying four more years of the Bush presidency would be 'hell' for the country." The AP adds that Heinz Kerry "told a rally Monday evening exactly what she thinks of the prospect of a second Bush term." With a Bush supporter "chanting 'Four more years! Four more years!' through a bullhorn from the back of a park, the candidate's wife stopped herself to respond. 'They want four more years of hell,' Heinz Kerry said." Reuters reports that later, "discussing the war in Iraq, Heinz Kerry subtly questioned Republican President Bush's intellect, saying: 'It's vital for anyone with intelligence to acknowledge mistakes and change positions hello.'"
