  Looking forward to thursday : I heard an explanation of the Bush presidency this morning that makes it easy to understand why he enjoys such widespread support. Beyond the core group of people who support him for the tax cuts, Bush appeals to the public at large on two levels. He has staked much on the notion of extending the principles of democracy to other countries, which connects to our highest ideals. And he holds himself up as our protector, which speaks to our fears and elicits a more visceral response. The combination is a very powerful one. By contrast, Kerry's appeal is purely intellectual--he only reaches us on that one level.

It's an important debate.

(UPDATE: Mom, I know you're out there. Don't worry, Kerry will do fine.)
