Interesting Poll

Just came across these numbers, released last week by Fox News. Bush and Kerry are in a dead heat–tied at 44 percent. A Kerry-Edwards ticket moves a few points above Bush-Cheney, 48 percent to 43 percent. Hillary Clinton has the opposite effect: A Kerry-HRC ticket drops to 42 percent, and Bush-Cheney rises to 47 percent. I maintain that Dick Gephardt is probably Kerry’s best bet, and that Kerry has a good option in Bill Richardson and a few others as well. And John Glenn, even at age 83, continues to concern me as a dark horse, assuming he’s in reasonably good health.
