While i certainly agreee with the Kerrys' position that the Peace Corps should be used to present a better image of the United States, he has not done anything yet. Bush has at least visited some Peace Corps volunteers overseas, and has made a promise and a minimal effort to keep the promsise to expand Peace Corps.

On the other hand, President Bush should be required to lobby for this cause rather than giving it what may be considered lip service. I believe it is not only a right but an obligatin for current and past Peace Corps volunteers to hold these candidates accountable for this area, regadless of party affliliation. As a journalist, businessman, and educator, I look more for results than promsises.

What is Kerry's record on voting for Peace Corps intiatives? has he followed through? Has he spoken with Peace Corps volunteers past or present?

What does Bush plan to do other than what he has done?

Which ever one becomes our ext president, should be held accounatble. Either way,I look forward to returning to Peace Corps service someday.

Do you really care if Bush supports the organization when he does not support the principles of Peace and what the Peace corp stands for. He has done more harm then any good the Peace Corp could do. He has divided the world and set up hate as the major emotion toward the US. He has fostered religious wars.

Look back to the charter of Peace Corp to live peace, to promote peace.
