My aunt called from Albuquerque, NM Friday night. She was standing in line at the Hispanic Cultural Center with about 10,000 other people to shake John Kerry’s hand. In front of her was a gentleman with arthritis who had difficulty standing. He informed her that he hadn’t ventured out to see a presidential candidate since Kennedy ran. She said that Edwards was positively glowing and Kerry towered over the waving signs. She got to shake his hand. She was so excited.
The Bush-Cheney team is acting like scared rabbits and they should be. It’s hard to fight that kind of excitement when you’re also busy covering your behind.
