This article focuses on presidential campaigns of candidates in the 2004 elections. Many presidential campaigns are spent obscuring the differences between the candidates. But John Kerry and George W. Bush are offering the nation a distinct choice. The election will also shake up New York politics, which recently has been defined by Republicans holding the two top jobs and virtually nothing else. If Bush wins re-election, she becomes the leading presidential challenger in 2008, with John Edwards, as Democrats search for a way to oust the hated Republicans. A Kerry victory gives Rudy Giuliani, already buoyed by his very successful performance at the Republican National Convention, a real shot at the presidency.
