Political roundup

John Fund on Democrats' "buyer's remorse": One of his sources says, "No one's saying that Mr. Kerry's cooked. But McGovern parallels give him a toasted look he didn't get skiing in Sun Valley."

Also, on today's WSJ op-ed page (not online yet except by subscription), John O'Neill, veteran of Coastal Division 11, 1969-70, holder of multiple decorations earned in the 'Nam, says: "I was on Mr. Kerry's boat in Vietnam. He doesn't deserve to be commander in chief."

Meanwhile, Conservative leader Michael Howard is lookin' good to be Brits' next PM.
