Kerry's adverbial distinctions

From an e-mail:
Did you see Karen Tumulty's love-fest interview with Kerry?

I noted that all of Kerry's distinctions between himself and Bush are
adverbial: I would not have given up so soon on rallying Frog support. I
would not have gone into Iraq in the way the President did. I would not
have funded the war in the way that the President did. Etc.

Kerry calls this giving the people a "stark choice" in the election.
