Will this challenge to Kerry's self-proclaimed war hero status devastate his presidential campaign?

Hundreds of former commanders and military colleagues of presumptive Democratic nominee John Kerry are set to declare in a signed letter that he is "unfit to be commander-in-chief." They will do so at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday.

Publicity matters, and so do TV ads. If the group can publicize its disdain for Kerry, it should have an impact. After all, what can Kerry say during a debate when someone asks why so many of his peers at war despise him? He can try to blame it on the vaunted "Republican attack machine", but it will ring false.
