Did anybody catch former New York Times editor Howell Raines' opinion piece in last week's Guardian? It pretty much takes a dump on Kerry. After all, if Bush is such a miserable failure, why isn't Lurch doing better?
Never mind the horse race crapola. The only poll numbers you need to know are the ones that show that Bush's base is far more solid than Kerry's. Which means that there's more swing in the polls than the liberals are letting on.
