A "Good" closer

Kerry is said to be a "good" closer in close elections. The next 9 days will tell.

However, this campaign unlike many previous years has been intense for much much longer than any previous election (in the modern era). As a result, I introduce an analogy from my sport, bike racing. The fast finishers in a short race, is rarely the same person as a winners in a long hard race. The winner of a one-day classic is not the same kind of man as the winner of a grand tour. The winner of a 35 minute criterium is not the kind of rider as the winner of a 5-7 hour road race.
