Poor Kerry. The media is so hung up on his possessions: He threw away his Vietnam medals, he didn't throw them away. They were his medals, they weren't his medals. He owns an SUV, no, his family owns an SUV. Do not call him a hypocrite, call him a Zen master. For him, objects are transient and ephemeral -- not really worth "owning."
He feels the same way about political positions.
