Kerry to Fight for Civil Liberties

This is music to our ears. Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry outlined a new terrorism plan Monday:

Democrat John Kerry said Monday he will end the "era of John Ashcroft" if elected president, stepping up efforts to protect civil liberties while strengthening the war on terrorism.

"In my first 100 days, I will restore our commitment to civil rights and individual rights," Kerry said in remarks to be delivered at Iowa State University. That will begin with the appointment of "an attorney general who knows he can fight the war on terrorism without attacking America's freedoms. ... an attorney general whose name is not John Ashcroft."
