    I'm having doubts, florida voting system is not fixed yet, and georgia is going all voting machines, no ballots.

    Bush still has his october suprise to whip out. And he can always cancel the election in the name of national security. Its already in their views, the liberals will lose the war and we will be invaded by hoards of militants, ya right.

    No Avatar I don't. My instincts tell me that one or the other will run away with it, but I never thought I'd see 2000 turn out the way it did.

    I still think when it gets close to election time, Bush will carry handily.

    I did. im still confident. The Iraq transfer of power is going to be happening soon. Bush has just accomplished something unprecidented in freeing a nation and helping them set up self governing system in less then two years. if it was just Iraq, it would be amazing but we have to remember we did the same with Aghanistan as well.

    Add to that the fact that the economy is roaring back. That Kerry contradicts himself every time he opens his mouth. Bush pretty much already has a clear victory. atleast if nothing changes.

    But We also have to remember that the Republican covenention is after The Democrats. The Democrat covention has to compete with Bill Clintons book, which will suck the air out of Kerry's camp, and then they have to deal with the Olympics flooding them out of the news and killing whatever momentum they have after recovering from the Clinton book. Kerry isnt in great shape. Those are just some of the problems he is facing.

    Its a close race, but mostly in states that should be a lock fo Kerry. and Despite the LA times poll that seems to put Kerry 7 points ahead of Bush, while somehow having Bush ahead in double digists in missouri and ahead by a few in ohio and wisconson not to mention the close races in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California, Kerry is essentially a dead duck.

    And this isnt even factoring in the debates. we have to remember that everytime kerry opens his mouth he puts his foot in it. "I voted for it before i voted against it". Add to that that he cant relate to the common man. doesnt know how to eat a cheese steak. walks past people who waited 8-9 hours to see President Reagan just for a photo op (im sure all the mourners were just thrilled about that). and that he has no charisma whatsoever.

    I think we will see a landslide. I can easily see California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, New Jersey, and New York going to Bush. This will not be as close as some think.

    Is it so hard to believe that a bill that on the surface looks like it would benifit our troops, would also serve other things that dont have to do with national security? That 87 billion was loaded with baggage.

    It passed, do you see our troops with body armor?? I see mothers having bake sales to get armor for their sons.

    Gen.: Troops in Iraq Now Have Body Armor

    Mon Jun 7, 3:56 PM ET Add U.S. National - AP to My Yahoo!


    By BILL BASKERVILL, Associated Press Writer

    COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. - The Army's top supply commander said Monday that all American troops in Iraq (news - web sites) are now equipped with bullet-resistant vests, after a shortage that led many soldiers to pay for costly body armor themselves.

    As late as March, some soldiers headed for Iraq were still buying their own body armor, despite assurances from the military that the equipment would be available before they were in harm's way.


    Gen. Paul Kern, commander of the Army Material Command, said the shortage eased after manufacturers stepped up production of the lifesaving vests.


    Kern spoke at a news conference where Honeywell Specialty Materials announced it would increase production of Spectra fiber, a key component of the vests. He said the vests had saved dozens of soldiers who were shot at close range.
