It's not just my changing jobs recently that's made it hard to follow political news from day to day. It's actually unexciting even to Dan Rather
, who complains of the exact planning and control of a basically moot Democratic National Convention. We're getting news stories telling us exactly what will be said in what speeches before they're delivered.
I don't really have any higher hopes for the Republican convention.
While I've already had all I can stand of daily polls, I predict the "bounce" for Kerry/Edwards will be small, possibly even having a reverse effect. We'll see how close I'm guessing in a few days.
