    Teresa insists hubby `likes people'
    By Noelle Straub
    Saturday, June 19, 2004

    WASHINGTON - Trying to erase the image of her husband as aloof, Teresa Heinz Kerry yesterday insisted Sen. John F. Kerry [related, bio] ``likes people'' and went so far as to say he would make a great nursery school teacher.

    ``He actually does feel at ease in the world,'' Heinz Kerry said.

    ``He likes people, in spite of whatever people might think. He'd make the best nursery school teacher in the world, bar none.''

    Heinz Kerry also called her husband ``magical with children,'' adding, ``That's a new revelation to me.''

    The outspoken potential first lady made the comments to a mostly female audience of 2,500 at a fund-raising luncheon here that netted $1.3 million.

    Kerry has long had a reputation as standoffish, and Democratic strategists fear the image may cost him in comparison to President Bush's easygoing manner.

    Heinz Kerry took veiled aim at Bush, saying if Kerry is elected, he will go to the United Nations and ``represent this country with great pride, but no arrogance.''

    ``He will never, ever, ever send any children, or men - as he was with young men in Vietnam - into harm's way without being the first one to go out on the boat,'' she said.

    Addressing terrorism, she said, ``We're not going to fight terrorism with missiles, we're going to fight terrorism with ideas. And I think that John knows that, deep down.''

    The very fact that Kerry's wife is saying things like this speaks volumes.

    Well,

    First, if Bush was going to be arrogant about it, he would have told the UN that combat operations were starting about 10 minutes before hand, instead of going to the UN for one more resolution, presenting their case against Iraq, etc. like we did.

    Second, I'm glad the Kerry got "wounded" three times in the line of duty. Great. But it still begs the question: Why is Kerry's military service of utmost concern when Bill Clinton's military service (or utter lack thereof) was never a concern?

    Third, the time to "fight terrorism with ideas" was over on 9/11. It is now time to fight terrorism with bullets, until the terrorists concede and end their war against the US. Until such time, any concession will only make the US look like we are losing staying power.
