I watched the first presidential joint appearance. My take on it is that Kerry did well. Kerry demonstrated that he is presidential. Kerry's argument was essentially if you want more of the same, Bush is your man. But if you think there is a better way, the Kerry may be your man. Bush continued to hit on the "flip-flop" theme. Kerry was more specific. I am interested in seeing the polling numbers in the next few days, specifics;;y polling from the swing states.

Busy week ahead with three local clients in need and a trip to the east scheduled later in the week. This trip can't be missed. And I will be looking to move by the end of October.

Life goes on.

It has been a very long week with way too much work and way too much alcohol. Next week will be better. It has to be.

The GOP convention is over and the polling numbers show GWB with a clear bounce. The electoral college shows GWB in a clear lead if the election were to be held today. States with recent polls showing a candadate winning that state with a margin of more than 2% result in Bush 247 and Kerry 242. That leaves 69 electoral votes as toss ups. Those states include: flordia, 27 electoral votes, GWB ahead by 1.0%; Iowa, 7, Kerry ahaead by 0.9%; New Hampture, 4, Kerry ahead by 1.5%; Pennslyvania, 21, Kerry ahead by 1.4%; Winconsin, 10, GWB ahead by 0.5%.

With less than 60 days till the election, GWB will likely be reelected unless Kerry gets his message out. And there is so much to talk about that isn't being discussed.

It looks to me as if the votors are simpl;y stupid. If we compare GWB's campaign promises 4 years in the past with his actual performance, there is plently of reason not to beleive his campaign promises of 2004. The problem may be that the democratic party is fundamentally flawed in their nomination process?

Personally, I think this election may be good for the party that loses the election. If GWB is defeated, and I hope he is defeated, I think it is likely that the GOP will take a close look at the role of the religious right in the party. If the democrats lose, I think it is likely that this democrats will examine what makes them different from the GOP.
