On the subject of the "anti-Bush" -- President Bush has got a lot right (at one time or another). He cut taxes, he put excellent people on the Supreme Court, and Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Lebanon are all less of a threat to us now than they were. To run as an "anti-Bush" a candidate would have to express unhappiness with some of that. I don't see it.
Bush won partly by advocating No Child Left Behind and Prescriptions in Medicare, and he got them done. So far, I don’t see any Republican advocating anything original. This is such a ho hum casmpaign we can do it with our eyes closed.
