If it happens again...

The new Zogby poll puts Kerry ahead by a tiny 48%-to-46% margin in a head-to-head race; if Nader stays in, the race is even. The most interesting finding: "If a major terrorist attack were again to hit the United States, 51% of likely voters prefer to be led by Bush as compared to Kerry with 40%."

If a Democrat, any Democrat, were in office and we got clobbered twice, the radio rightists would surely denounce said Democrat as a weakling. But with Bush, a second strike would only add to his aura of strength -- despite his inability to capture Osama! Go figure.

The article below is not unrelated.
