Shoes on the other foot...feels kinda funny...

I don’t think that either side has this thing wrapped up yet, 5 weeks is an eternity in politics.

I don’t sense the desperation in the Bush camp. I sense a sort of easy confidence developing. They may be wrong, and getting complacent at this point could certainly be fatal, but I suspect that each passing day sees a more confident whitehouse. Kerry has thus far failed to make the sale, and his time is running out.

The debates are Kerry’s last good chance to prove his worth over Bush, and I suspect that he will be good. I doubt he will score a knockout. Kerry needs to WOW! us and I don’t think that is his nature. The fence sitters aren’t getting off the fence for someone that seems marginally better than what they currently have.
