    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Sunday, October 24, 2004

    W is for Win, but what was that score? 

    It used to be that in the Kerry camp, "W" stood for "Wrong." That's back when "W" stood for "Walker" and in George Walker Bush.

    Now that the Red Sox are in the World Series, "W" is good. No, not that "W." Upon learning that the Red Sox won a squaker in Boston Saturday night, Kerry told fellow travelers on his plane: "A win is a win. A 'W' is what goes up" in the box scores. "A 'W' in the 'Win' column, 'Win' column."

    And, yes, a win is a win, no matter what the score. But Kerry is making the game between his beloved Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals even more of a squeaker than it was.

    As he arrived at the Mount Hermon A.M.E. church Sunday, a reporter asked how he feld about the race. "10-9, the Sox did fabulous," he answered, smiling broadly. Later, as he addressed the congregation, he declared himself blessed. "The Red Sox won 10-9," he said.

    As you check that "W" in the box score, though, check the score. The Red Sox won 11-9.
