    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Bush still has the advantage 

    Now that Sominex Tuesday is finally over, and Sen. John Edwards made his valiant last stand, the presidential race comes down to a Yale-educated Massachusetts liberal versus a Yale-educated Texas conservative.

    Sure, it's early in the game, and the Democrats are feeding off a lot of energy and emotion. But when you get past all the hoopla of selecting a candidate, you've got to like President Bush's chances against Sen. John Kerry.

    Think of incumbency like a home-field advantage in football or basketball. Whatever factors a president can control, plus those issues a president whose party leads both houses of Congress can control, will fall to Bush. That's a big edge.
