It's actually a bizarre comment coming from McClellan. Why is it that the "only conclusion one can draw" is that Kerry is "making it up"? That seems like an odd concept, could he possibly be that stupid? One could easily draw many conclusions including that any world leader who was "outed" by Kerry as being opposed to Bush would suffer horrific reprisals and generally be an embarassment in the international community. I mean, you think these things, maybe even say them to your friends over a beer. But diplomatically, you just can't publically piss off a sitting president.
Our man Dick actually made more sense by saying ``Senator Kerry said, `That's none of your business,' but it is our business when a candidate for president claims the political endorsement of foreign leaders,'' Cheney said. ``At the very least, we have a right to know what he is saying to them that makes them so supportive of his candidacy.'' Boston Herald has the story here. I would suspect that Dick Cheney's understanding of the role of secrecy and power give him a better understanding of why some world leader wouldnt be willing to step forward and say "yeah it was me".
