if bush had had any diplomatic successes he'd tout them; he wouldn't be embarassed by them.
(disconnect: carter did the yeoman's job freeing the hostages, yet reagan took the credit.)
btw, i'm quite sure what we're seeing is less kerry support and more realization that bush is a loose cannon with nuclear warheads.

Actually, I think this whole thing started when Kim Il Jong announced
support for a Kerry presidency before this whole foreign leader thing
came about. Kim Il Jong said he's supporting Kerry as he feels
Kerry would resume bi-lateral talks with North Korea instead of the
current multi-lateral ones that involve China, Russia, Japan, South
Korea and others. Kim Il Jong's endorsement would be a big
embarrassment except for that fact that it happens all the time
with very little effect on policy. The only exception I can remember
is the the Iranians supported Reagan in the 1980 elections and held
US citizens captive until the day he was sworn in.

Kinda like being called a commie-lover, without the commies.
