    of musicians supporting Kerry and those supporting Bush.

    My Kerry list had over 300 people cutting across genres from classical to jazz to hardcore punk. Everybody was turning out to try to turn Bush out of the White House. Dozens of local musicians here were playing fundraisers and voter registration concerts.

    My Bush list had about 30, and I had to push it and include fringe people like a girl surfer who recorded a demo hoping to be the next Britney Spears and a cop whose main musical experience was performing the Star Spangled Banner at ballgames. Virtually all were either country acts — few major ones — or contemporary "Christian" artists. (The gospel acts were on the other side.)

    Even Toby Keith was quick to say he wasn't a Republican.

    Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
