I know it's still very early in the election cycle. I know things can and will change many times before November. But there is something nice about starting the day by looking at news like this:
PRINCETON, NJ -- In a hypothetical presidential contest, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry leads President George W. Bush by 12 percentage points among likely voters, 55% to 43%, while North Carolina Sen. John Edwards leads Bush by 10 points, 54% to 44%.
And it doesn't hurt to keep working on the "Bush is a one-term miserable failure" meme. There's nothing like an aura of inevitability to rally the faint of heart to our banners.
