I have to agree, running a campaign that way, completely nonstop (Kerry apparently almost wasn't off the air for 12 hours the last day) is incredibly
tiring. Let's drop the politics and the dislikes of one or the other for a moment.
Kerry is 60, Bush is 58. Both are in late middle-age, and although they both seem in good health, they don't necessarily have the stamina of a 25
year-old. This would be an incredible effort for any youngster, it's even more so for men their age.
They've both been running on adrenaline for weeks now, and obviously, now that it's over the adrenaline is dropping big time. They're probably both
feeling the weight of fatigue right now, and so it doesn't surprise me that Bush was 13 minutes late or that he looked tired. Yesterday, when he made
his victory speech, what struck me was how small his eyes were. I may really dislike the guy a LOT as president, I do recognize that as a human being
he put in the long, excruciating hours it took.
