One can only hope that this will happen. The Bush administration has lost their credibility in my book completely. I would define Bush's operation as the "faith based" administration. Everything they do is not based on fact, but rather ephemeral hopes and expectations. The overt cronyism, the nuancing of the truth about the threat Iraq posed to us, deceptive governmental accounting standards, and the silly political ploys are the calling cards of the Bush administrations policies; most decisions are made with these considerations in mind. Bush is surrounded by some very smart advisors who are masters of manipulation and power plays. These advisors, known in Washington lexicon as "neo-conservatives", will stop at nothing to get their agenda through, even if it means outing a CIA agent whose husband wasn't towing the administation line on Saddam's nuclear program to the manipulation of intelligence to suit one's needs. Our credibility is on the line here, consolidating power is part of the game, but to what ends? That's were these ideologues go wrong. Here's my mea culpa, I'm a Republican, I supported Bush in both the primary and the general election back in 2000. My reasoning was that there were no other viable candidates in the primary or the general election. McCain had the same problem that Dean had, a tendency to jump to conclusions, but in retrospect he probably would have been a better president than Bush. Gore seemed vapid and weak with no interesting proposals to speak of. Bush's foreign policy proposal of less interventionism appealed highly to me; turns out that he's even worse than Clinton in this regard. On fiscal and monetary matters I'm a conservative and I felt that Bush would do a decent job of managing the budget. I thought that Bush would take a moderate course given that he was elected with a very small mandate. Turns out that we got a raw deal here. The President re-election campaign consists of damage control, distortations, and the utilization of wedge cultural issues to motivate the political base. This is what has sustained his popularity all along. I'll give him credit, he's a smart tactician, I don't believe he deserves to be re-hired, but Bush is the odds-on favorite to win re-election. He connected with the people after 9/11 and he hasn't entirely lost that glow yet. Bush should be judged for his actions and initiatives for his entire term in the aggregate. Kerry clearly has to loosen up and connect with the American people if he expects to win the election. He's become a product of his handlers, and that's a dangerous thing. Kerry has a tendency of rambling and not electrifying his crowds, which is a bad sign. He's got to work up the crowds, get people interested in the campaign and be solid. If he's not, he will be perceived as weak and that's a killer in national elections. Bush might be running on a light record of accomplishment, but he's a nicer guy, the economy isn't that bad relatively speaking, and his perceived strengths on national security matters give the President the edge.

I am an atheist, but Bush losing in 2004 might inpire me to believe in a merciful God who loves us. Because Bush's current presidency is evidence against God's mercy to humankind.

This would definitely be the Event of the Year in 2004--if it happened. For some reason, people continue to fall for the Bush Administration's fibs.

If the majority of the voters feel Howard Dean can lead us in this international climate of terrorism......man, that's a scary thought. On top of that, if the majority of voters actually feels Dean's ideas on taxation and redistribution of taxpayer's money is what is in the best interest of this country........well, let me stop right there. That's enough.

I wish, but I'm not hopeful. The American sheeple continue to bleat contentedly, even though jobs evaporate, the world hates us more and more and fighter jets escort our own airplanes.

If Lieberman is elected, fine. But, if a foolish ninny like Clark or Dean is elected--our nation is in trouble! Bush should come back!

i can't see this one happening unless there is a major foreign policy crisis close to the election and/or a complete meltdown of the economy. this would be more likely if howard dean was a more formidable opponent.
