Kerry starts to fade

I believe Bush will win handily. It seems that all around the country the polls are moving in Bush's direction. I suspect it is not only the well run Republican convention, but I think the recent terrorist attacks in Russia have remind voters of threat we face. One may argue Kerry would be more effective fighting terrorism, but people are reluctant to change horses in the middle of a raging river. To put it another way, better the devil you know than the one you don’t.

I've seen snippets of Kerry speaking. I don't know if he’s just tired, has a health problem he’s keeping secret, it’s just his nature or has mentally conceded defeat. He says the words, but there’s just no passion. Listening to a Cheney speech has been likened to watching paint dry. But Kerry doesn’t seem to be much better.

Say what you will about Zell Miller and Al Sharpton, but at least they had passion.
