It's Bush's race to lose

With a successful convention behind him, this is President Bush's race to lose. The latest economic numbers released by the labor department this morning reported that the nation's unemployment rate dipped to 5.4 percent and the economy created 144,000 jobs in August. A growing economy combined with President Bush's advantages over John Kerry on national security issues is likely to result in a decisive, though not overwhelming, victory for the incumbent this November.
