Kerry, Edwards begin 2008 campaign
"Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts and former Sen. John Edwards spoke separately Monday on the government's handling of the [Hurricane Katrina] catastrophe and on the broader issue of poverty in the United States. In a blistering critique, Kerry said former Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown was to Hurricane Katrina 'what Paul Bremer is to peace in Iraq; what George Tenet is to 'slam dunk intelligence'; ... what George Bush is to 'Mission Accomplished' and 'Wanted Dead or Alive.' ... The bottom line is simple: The 'we'll do whatever it takes' administration doesn't have what it takes to get the job done.'"
