The field was leveled a bit this evening.  John Edwards didn’t shine as much as I’d hoped he would and he left me a bit disappointed with his repetition of Kerry’s points almost word-for-word at times.  The gay marriage question still irks me.  The Democrats need to get some intestinal fortitude and stand up for gay marriage.  As far as things go, though, I think that on the whole Kerry and Edwards still have the lead after the horrible showing by the President last week.  Friday should prove to be the final blow for the Bush campaign.
