Further Prep
If this election was tomorrow, I think Bush would win. Another week of bad news like we've had last week: stock market, oil prices, Iraqi's getting ambushed by the dozens, and this could change. I remember Haley Barbour once said that in politics "a week was a light year", which was kinda odd, because one is a measure of time and the other distance, but I understood his point.

Bush is taking some flack for his most recent mis-statement about it being "up in the air" as to whether we will ever be truly safe. But this is just stating the obvious. We will never be truly safe from every threat and anyone who tells you differently is a douchebag who is lying to you. The kind of world that would be required to be safe from every threat is one that we would not enjoy and could not afford.

Anyway, I'm voting for Bush, but if Kerry wins, it won't be the end of the world. There are some things that Kerry might do that would be worthwhile, like de-emphasizing the war on drugs and, um, well, that's all I can think of. But there would be other good things that would come out of having divided government, and it's always fun to watch a President struggle to get things done.
