McCain nailed it on the Today Show:
Yahoo! News – McCain Says Kerry Not Weak on Defense: “‘The senator from Massachusetts has given us ample doubts about his judgment and the attitude he brings to bear on vital issues of national security,’ Cheney said in a speech Wednesday.
Asked on NBC’s ‘Today’ if he thought Kerry was weak on defense, McCain said: ‘No, I do not believe that he is, quote, weak on defense. He’s responsible for his voting record, as we are all responsible for our records, and he’ll have to explain it. But, no, I do not believe that he is necessarily weak on defense. I don’t agree with him on some issues, clearly. But I decry this negativism that’s going on on both sides. The American people don’t need it.’ “
