Politics come to New Mexico

Yep, even out here in our sparsly populated State, the political campaign
makes itself known.

On Thursday President Bush and Democratic VP Candidate Edwards
made stops in Las Cruces.

Aprx 12,000 people traveled and were on hand to see and hear President Bush.

Three hours later, our high profile Democratic Governor, Bill Richardson,
managed to turn out about 2000 for Edwards. This is in the same town.

Wonder if this is a forecast of things to come.

I don't know how things will turn out in November, but I'd guess that the "drawing power" of a sitting president vs a vice-president wannabe are rather different. Of course, a lot might depend on who was invited and whether anybody got removed from the rallies.

A better comparison would be if Cheney came to town at the same time as Edwards, but even that might not predict election outcomes.

(NT) (NT) I'm surprised Richardson didn't bus 'em in.
