Kerryism of the Day

The senator's caveats and curlicues.

Kerry version:

I believe we have to continue down the road of reform. And I am not talking about undoing any standards. I'm not talking about not measuring. I'm not talking about not testing. I'm talking about doing it in a way that respects teaching, respects education, and knows how to put discretion into a system that advances it through respect, doesn't drag it backwards and downwards through punitive, disrespectful actions.
