I missed some of the debate last night. I cannot say for certain who one, but then, judging by the polls, neither can anyone else.
It is clear Edwards doesn't have as much experience as Cheney, but as a result of that he has an 'untarnished' feel to him that makes me think he would not put up with any of the standard bullshit that got thrown at him.
Cheney is a long time political vet. But he is way too 'in' the system to effect any meaningful changes.
I guess in the end it will come down to Bush and Kerry, which so far is good, because Kerry did well in the previous debate.
In the next when he needs to not fuck up, and he should be ok. We'll see.
Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Illinois - all the states are on a knife edge when it comes to the polls. This race could go either way, and there is less than a month to go. It is disheartening to see so much red on the US political map though. Vast swathes of middle america are firmly republican. But then, there are less people in this areas, so it kind of balances out.
And I have a feeling that we're not done with the damning revelations yet either.
I also wouldn't be surprised if Bin Laden was 'rumoured to have been captured' in the days immediately preceding the election.
Ok, I'm done for the day. I have work to do.
Happy humpday.
