Also, you are aware that absentee voting has already started in one state, I foget which one.  It was on the news Monday.

So there are people already voting.  Kerry may have run out of time to change enough people's minds.

George W. Bush has it down: the "bring 'em on" macho sensibility, the public swagger, even the quick-draw High Noon cowboy stride. Call it the testosterone factor. It's one reason Bush has maintained a strong appeal to white men throughout his presidency, especially in the South and Southwest.

Can someone please explain this? George Bush doesn't come across as particularly "macho" to me. He comes across as a regular 'guy'. Are regular guys so rare these days that the appearance of one causes an eruption of negative stereotypes by the media? Are there no 'guys' where these journalists live?
He does have a bit of a cowboy walk. Call it the Texas Two Step. :hehe:
Can't Touch This!!

My dad who is housebound voted yesterday. We live in Oklahoma.
