It's great seeing Bush bashed by everyone. But let's not get too excited quite yet. Remember that there will almost surely be shifts in momentum, some of which will favor the Pubs. See, for example, my last post.
On the other hand, I really like Kerry's long term prospects. Consider this. A big part of the country consists of people who are not religious fanatics, but who are strong on security and are fiscal conservatives. These people have been voting Republican for as long as I can remember, certainly since Reagan. But I don't think they'll vote for Bush. Why should they? Bush is a big spending religious fanatic who has actually hurt the country's security by leading us into an optional war under false pretenses. Kerry will win this demo, or at least be competitive. And he will crush Bush in the more traditional Democrat audience.
My biggest worry is not even winning the election, but what will happen afterwards. The economic problems we're facing are not going to go away just because there's a Democrat in office.
