I was thinking of voting for Kerry because he's a Free Trader, but....ooops!

The Washington Times, Kerry Trading Places On Trade: The trade agreement that the United States and Central American countries signed Friday could become a casualty of election-year posturing, with Sen. John Kerry leading the deal's push over the political precipice. This is a shame, because the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) bolsters prospects for the region's development while expanding markets mainly for U.S. agricultural producers and fabric-makers.

    In Mr. Kerry's latest incarnation, he has criticized America's trade deals in general and CAFTA in particular. This positioning is surprising, since Mr. Kerry had consistently supported major trade initiatives....

If you listened to their rhetoric you would think Democrats care about little brown-skinned people in little brown-skinned countries....but you would be wrong.
