Now you know why Kerry needs a new team

From the NY Times today.

The Kerry campaign has become roiled in recent days by criticism – from inside and outside – of its decision to initially resist responding to the attacks on Mr. Kerry’s war record by a group of veterans. Members of the Clinton camp as well as some of Mr. Kerry’s aides were said to have believed that the slow response hurt Mr. Kerry and contributed to polls in recent days suggesting that he had slipped behind Mr. Bush.

“We talked about this last year, the fact that Republicans would come after his service and the idea that they would come after what he did when he got home,” said one midlevel Kerry adviser who is not part of the Clinton camp. “The idea that we got caught flat-footed is just crazy.”

Mr. Shrum, in an interview yesterday, called such second-guessing “ridiculous,” saying, “We responded within six or seven days.

Thank God he works for the Democrats.
