Day 1 Recap:

- John McCain kicks off his 2008 Presidential campaign by verbally bitch-slapping Michael Moore, to the delight of Republicans and Michael Eisner.

- Rudy Giuliani invokes 9/11 and compares Bush to Winston Churchill(!?!), all in one speech.

- 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 face with 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.
