Summary of Election 2004 (Evan Thomas and the Staff of Newsweek)

How Bush Did It

The political family is a tradition in United States history and in the 2004 election, two families based in politics, the Bushes and the Kerrys, sparred against each other.

These families were both lead by men desiring the position of Commander In Chief of the United States. These men, George W. Bush and John F. Kerry, seemed destined to meet in this particular race as can be foreshadowed in the previous events of their lives.

Both men went to Yale University. The “when” and “how” or “if they even had” met while both were at Yale is still unconfirmed. However, Kerry recalled Bush at Yale, “he was two years behind me at Yale, and I knew him, and he’s still the same guy.” Although they went to the same university and were in similar organizations, the two men were not on the same path in life.

Kerry is known to be very complex and has proven his toughness and resilience in war and politics, yet Kerry’s campaign was unwieldy and clumsy. On the other hand, Bush, a once wild and undisciplined frat boy, was contrary to his past. His campaign was clever, organized and fast to respond.

The Democrats: Fits and Starts

The beginning of John Kerry’s campaign was full of conflict. The campaign bus slogan “Courage Equals Kerry” troubled Kerry. He did not want to ride the bus that he felt tried glorify his combat experience. Kerry was not comfortable with advertising his combat record.
