No practical difference between Bush & Kerry?

Radley Balko, writing at FoxNews, says in this column that it really doesn’t matter much who wins the Presidential race as on the issues that divide the two, the Executive has little say (e.g. gay marriage, abortion), while on issues where the President has power (e.g. foreign affairs, trade), they differ little. I think he’s got a point, up to a point. The forgotten factor: coattails!
