This may be as good an understanding of the election as any I have seen.
I can only imagine the understated British manner of the English policeman (as reported by a friend):
"I like Bush because he is affable and if he says hes going to bomb you he is as good as his word and I think that counts for a lot in politicians today. Articulate he is not but he seems to get by.
"I never could warm to Clinton because he fudged everything which probably means he was a pretty good politician. He will always be remembered for his poor judgement where women were concerned.
"As for Kerry he seems blessed with neither charm, determination nor political savvy.
"I think the Bush dynasty is safe."
