One week to go

I am anxious, nervous and excited. I'm sick that this election is boiling down to a few states. The Ohio polls are mixed, but all are close. The Wisconsin polls are a little less mixed but there are two results that are tied, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for Kerry to win there. It looks like Bush is gaining ground in Minnesota, but earlier polls showed Kerry with quite a lead, so that state is still up in the air. New Mexico looks a little scary.

The ABC poll has Kerry ahead by a point. I saw snippets of Bush from Good Morning America. Charlie Gibson asked him what his views on homosexuality were again. He conceded that it was within the realm of possibility that homosexuality is a natural state and that no one should be denied rights based on sexual orientation. Then he went on to support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Does he not realize that people would use the constitutional amendment to deny rights? Maybe he does, which is even scarier. I can't find a clip anywhere, but it was kind of interesting--and scary.
