Max Cleland Turned Away from Crawford Ranch

Former Senator and Vietnam War Veteran Max Cleland went to Crawford today to deliver a letter from 9 Senators to President Bush asking him to condemn the Swift Boat Vets ad. He was turned away and left, still holding the letter. Buzzflash has the text of the letter here.

As Cleland approached the ranch, he was greeted by Bush supporter Jerry Patterson, also a Vietnam Vet, who handed him a letter written by some other vets criticizing Kerry for criticizing the war when he came home.

This whole Swift Boat affair has gotten beyond tiresome. It's a major distraction and the Bush camp is hoping it continues. Because, otherwise, the focus goes back to Bush and his failures as a leader the past four years.
