After an adrenalyne-inhibited sleep, it's off to the polls. I'll be here, any case anyone feels like dropping off fruit. No? OK, I guess not.
Look, it's going to be a good day. This governor-then-president has gone through more second-guessing than just about anyone I can remember, including from you and me. 2000 was too close, should have campaigned through the weekend, weren't ready for the DUI. Should he be aiming so high for those tax cuts? Why did it take three weeks(!) to respond in Afghanistan? (I actually heard this.) And of course, why Iraq?
These are people with good instincts. Remember a month ago, when the conventional wisdom was that President Kerry would get a Democratic Senate? Not going to happen. Remember when Amendment 36 threatened to turn Colorado into a mudpit of litigation, the likes of which we haven't seen since last night in South Dakota? Not going to happen.
We all want this. But Kerry wants it too much.
Which is why he's not going to get it.
