I think it would be great if the nomination race goes right up to the convention! The press LOVES a horse race and will cover this as a major story, every day. And every day the media will be reporting what each candidate said about how terrible Bush is for the country!
For example, With Race Near Fever Pitch, Candidates Zero In on Bush:
“Throughout the day, the candidates denounced Mr. Bush’s economic and foreign policy: in one typical remark, Mr. Kerry described the foreign policy as ‘arrogant and inept.’ But mainly, it was a day for the candidates to avoid conflict with one another and set out the themes that have defined this campaign since the beginning. From here in southern New Hampshire to Hanover, in the western part of the state, and from the seacoast to the hills of Keene in the southwest, the candidates called for a sharp expansion of health care coverage and an end to tax cuts that benefit the wealthy. More than anything else, each presented himself as the Democrat who could beat Mr. Bush. “
So here’s to Dean, Kerry, Edwards and Clark – may the best man not emerge until August!
