Kerry dodges Bob Woodward

Which is odd, since he could probably count on some pretty tender treatment. An excerpt from the Washington Post article:

"At the end of last year, during 3 1/2 hours of interviews over two days, I asked President Bush hundreds of detailed questions about his actions and decisions during the 16-month run-up to the war in Iraq. His answers were published in my book 'Plan of Attack.' Beginning on June 16, I had discussions and meetings with Sen. John Kerry's senior foreign policy, communications and political advisers about interviewing the senator to find out how he might have acted on Iraq -- to ask him what he would have done at certain key points. Senior Kerry advisers initially seemed positive about such an interview. One aide told me, 'The short answer is yes, it's going to happen.'"

But it didn't, denying the world a chance to compare what Bush did with what Kerry would have done. I find that extremely odd for a guy who said "I would've done almost everything differently," on September 1 of this year. The story is basically a list of the questions Woodward would have asked Kerry, if he had submitted to the interview.
