If it looks like Dent's demographic analysis is still on track (he predicts 41,000 on the Dow by 2009), I'll probably start shifting 10% per year of my portfolio (currently over 90% stock) to 30-Year US Treasuries in 2005 with the goal of being 50% bonds by 2009.

This sounds like a smart strategy. If there is a terrific bear (stock) market and bond run-up as Dent suggests, will you rebalance your bond/equity ratio at some point or will you let it ride?
