    Is it me or as I read this story, do I get a sense of panic from the Democrats?

    Kerry is obviously delusional. I have not seen any polls to lead me to believe that he is strong on national security. He is described as skeptical a running mate can make a decisive difference in the outcome, but wonders if he needs a moderate or conservative Democrat to improve his centrist credentials - WHAT!

    The Democrats should be less confident he has sold himself as a moderate politician. Understatement.

    In a way, I feel for the Democrats and the nation as a whole. They have themselves a candidate that has no chance in hell of winning. They are putting allot of time, effort and money on a nag. The nation looses because this candidate brings nothing to the table for meaningful and challenging dialouge.

    What do you base that on?
    Partisanship?
    Polls have them neck and neck.
    Alot depends on the story(ies) of the moment come election time.

    And, BTW, most VP searches are kept under wraps until a decision is made.

    Up to this point the coverage of the race has been mostly Democrat and the best they could do was pull even. The Repubs haven't even gotten the war machine running yet. After the Repub convention Bush will get a 6-8% bump which will be insurmountable by Kerry and that combined with the Nader siphoning will spell defeat.

    Don't count on any bump from the Demo convention, Bubba will see to it that that doesn't happen.

    Don't need polls for that determination. I read - and what I read leads me to believe that even the Democrats feel that way. Besides, the polls will give you whatever numbers you want. Depends on how the question is worded and to what demographic it is given to.

    Gotcha, your original post--"He is described as skeptical a running mate can make a decisive difference in the outcome"-- made no sense.

    Ask 1000 random people who they are voting for, my bet is that you would get close to a 500-500 split if indeed the 1000 were a randomly selected sample of the nation.
