The V-word

Kerry Invoking 'Values' Theme to Frame Issues

Last Saturday, Mr. Kerry used the V-word no fewer than eight times in a 36-minute speech to Hispanic leaders and next Wednesday he is scheduled to give a speech on his "plan to restore America's values to the White House."

It sounds the same whether he is discussing the minimum wage or immigration, foreign policy or his own biography: Senator Kerry is increasingly adopting a traditionally Republican refrain to give his campaign — and himself — grounding and context in broad moral terms.
