ANALYSIS: I think it's a good credibility-building spot. You usually use a credibility-building spot at the beginning of a campaign when candidates need to establish basic credibility, or in the waning days of the campaign when there are a lot of charges and attacks and counterattacks going back and forth.

I think it is one of the best spots Kerry has run.
