Have the 2nd line withina bullet sentence to line up with the first line

Currently looks like this:
-   Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla

What it to look like this:
-    Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla,
     Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla

In other words align the second line of the same bullet with the first bullet point line.

Thanks,
JP

I'm using the 2007 version of PowerPoint, and what you describe appears to be the default behaviour.
If you're using a different version, try adjusting the 'Paragraph' settings so that you have 'Hanging' indentation by the same width as the 'Before text' indentation on the paragraph, e.g.:

Paragraph - Indentation:
- Before text: 0.95 cm
- Special: Hanging
- By: 0.95 cm

Good luck,

Not all versions of PPT have a paragraph setting.

You can adjust the indents on the ruler. Go to View | Ruler to turn it on if necessary. Then drag the upward-pointing indent marker (the triangular one) to the left to match up with the one on the top. Dragging the square on the bottom drags both indent markers together.

I have tried many things, including what Minuteman suggested, over 2000, 2003, 2007 versions of PP, and I have never been able to find any way to do this.  I simply never use bullets now (and by the way, I recommend that anyway -- bullets are not needed on slides and I personally think they should be avoided as clutter).
