Kerry seems far more comfortable, far more at ease with himself, when talking about Vietnam than when trying to feel his way through talking points (specifically, talking about his '71 Congressional testimony -- how proud he was he'd done it, but how with the full benefit of experience and hindsight he would have phrased some things less abrasively.)

That's natural, of course -- it's always easier to simply talk than recite memorized material. But it also explains why Vietnam keeps coming up with Kerry. It's his strongest card to play when he speaks.
