As We Watch "The Debate" Tonight, Let us Contemplate "Women" and "Enthusiasm"

"Nearly two in three likely voters who support President Bush -- 65 percent -- said they were "very enthusiastic" about their candidate while 42 percent of Sen. John F. Kerry's supporters express similarly high levels of enthusiasm for their choice, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News Poll.

"That's a 23-point difference in relative excitement." That, my friends, could be the decisive factor.
