Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, who lost the 2004 presidential contest, forcefully defended Barack Obama's patriotism in a speech Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention and assured the party faithful that "this time we're going to win."

"This election is a chance for America to tell the merchants of fear and division: You don't decide who loves this country," Kerry, 64, said. "You don't decide who is a patriot."

John Kerry in his 2008 convention speech recalled his experience in 2004, when a third-party group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, ran TV ads that questioned his service during the Vietnam War and contributed to his defeat.

He questioned why some people still believed in John McCain's "myth of a maverick" and listed what he said were McCain's changes of position since he became a presidential candidate.

John Kerry said Obama was taught his patriotism by his family, including his great-uncle Charles Payne, an Army veteran who helped liberate a concentration camp during World War II. John Kerry's DNC speech saluted Payne who was in the convention hall.
