Deborah Orin in the NY Post - Dems Start Race to Derail Dean:
Labor Day is supposed to kick off the Democratic 2004 presidential race, but this year it marked the kickoff of the frantic race to catch up with anti-war front-runner Howard Dean.

Rival Sen. John Kerry (Mass.) today "officially" launches his own sagging campaign in hopes of jump-starting it - after a weekend of blasting Dean as a soft-on-defense tax-hiker who can't beat President Bush.

"We need to win," Kerry insisted yesterday, adding that the only way to win is with someone who can convince Americans he's strong on terrorism.
John Kerry complaining that someone is soft on defense and terrorism? I guess it's all relative.
