WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senator John Kerry is sharply criticizing John McCain, whom he once courted as a running mate in 2004.
Kerry, the Massachusetts Democrat defeated by President Bush, says McCain has been wrong on every judgment he's made about the Iraq war. Kerry tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that McCain doesn't have the judgment to be president.
Kerry says the man he offered the vice presidency to in 2004 "has changed in profound and fundamental ways" that Kerry finds "really surprising, and frankly upsetting." He says McCain has gone from maverick to someone who flip-flops in hopes of winning the presidency.
A McCain adviser says it was McCain who stood up to the administration and urged President Bush to send more troops to Iraq to help control violence.
