On further reflection, Brummett wonders if Clinton’s Fox blowup was calculated. He concludes it’s had a positive effect for Democrats.
Now Clinton’s episode on Fox has some people reconsidering, irrespective of Iraq, whether the war on terror and the pursuit of bin Laden is really Bush’s strong suit. The issue has been put on the table for discussion.
Democrats don’t need to change a lot of minds. Take a hundred voters. If two of them part with Bush over Iraq, and one more abandons Bush over bin Laden, then you’ve got yourself a new Congress in November and a more electable Democrat for president two years later.
