    Bush 42%
    Kerry 48%

    These polls are meaningless at this point.

    •  That was in the middle of war and before Kerry's (0+ / 0-)

      ignoring the Veterans for Truth.
      Plus Obama is more likeable than McCain. Whereas Kerry wasn't more 'likeable' than Bush, at that time.

      Then again, reality has a well-known Obama bias.

        Only reason I voted for him was because he wasn't Bush.  Oh and I really dug Theresa.

          acknowledged he was sorely lacking in charisma and likeability that some voters want.

          An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

      •  true and when the Iraq War (0+ / 0-)

        sadly was still not unpopular and most were in favor of continuing it at the time. It was almost an entirely different era even if was only 4 years ago.

        The economy is much worse, the war is unpopular, Bush's approval numbers are in the sewer, and both Obama and even Hillary are more exciting on the stump than John Kerry.

        Granted, I adore and respect John Kerry. I like and respect him more than Hillary but she is even better out there on the campaign trail than Kerry.

    •  Current perceptions are meaningless?? (0+ / 0-)

      indefinate, changeable, unsure. I'll give you those, but not meaningless.

      For one, it affects how people will choose between Clinton and Obama.

      For another, I think you have the advantage if you start off on top in the perception game.
