Quote of the day

From America's favorite flip-flopper, Senator Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry, at a liberal rally:
Kerry, who was widely criticized as the party's standard-bearer in 2004 for being too cautious in his criticism of the war, said Tuesday that politicians "cannot have it both ways."

In remarks that could have been aimed at Clinton, Kerry said: "It's not enough to argue with the logistics or to argue about the details. ... It is essential to acknowledge that the war itself was a mistake. ... It was wrong, and I was wrong to vote for that Iraqi war resolution."
The king of ketchup is also the king of "having it both ways", and judging by his comments, it looks like he designates that right solely to himself.

Is "I actually did vote for the $87 billion...before I didn't" considered "having it both ways"? I thought so.
