- Bush himself tells Matt Lauer he doesn't think the war on terror can be won. Whoops, wait a minute, it can be won, there just won't be a formal declaration of peace.

Day 2 Preview:

- The GOP puts on its moderate facewith a speech by our very own Governator, who will walk a very fine line of trying to support Bush while not alienating the folks back home.

- Laura Bush will give a speech announcing (surprise) that she thinks her husband deserves 4 more years.

- John Kerry will engage in more ridiculous windsurfing photo-ops. John Edwards will continue to attack Bush's terror war flip-flop.

Also: Are moderate Republicans like McCain, Giuliani, and Schwarzenegger selling out to Bush, or are they true believers? You tell us.
