Interesting. Bush's response to the shortage of flu vaccine is probably an okay response to a bad situation, but also gives more hope to Canadian pharmaceutical giants than I'd like. Enh.
"I haven't gotten a flu shot and I don't intend to." Um, yay for setting an example, but you're somewhat important, y'know? Do we need a president put out-of-commission by a random cold?
Kerry's response assumes that under a socialized health care system, there'd be no shortage of essential drugs - something we had experience with here quite to the contrary in early 2002.
