John Zogby yesterday: “I think this election is John Kerry’s to lose. Which is not to say that he can’t rise to the occasion.” Here’s the transcript of his online “chat” about polling, at the Washington Post site. And here’s columnist Richard Cohen’s take on how Kerry is managing to “rise to the occasion” so far. Basically, by not saying anything. Kerry has money — not as much as Bush, but more than we expected he’d have at this point. He’s got an “energized base.” He’s got a compelling personal history. He’s got a vocabulary… But he’s not doing a very good job of telling us how he will be different. This is starting to scare me.
