Be careful that when you go to the polls you don't end up voting for a third Bush term. That would happen if you elect -- no, not John McCain:
We're beginning to understand why Barack Obama keeps protesting so vigorously against the prospect of "George Bush's third term." Maybe he's worried that someone will notice that he's the candidate who's running for it.
Most Presidential candidates adapt their message after they win their party nomination, but Mr. Obama isn't merely "running to the center." He's fleeing from many of his primary positions so markedly and so rapidly that he's embracing a sizable chunk of President Bush's policy. Who would have thought that a Democrat would rehabilitate the much-maligned Bush agenda?
What do you know? This is almost Change I Can Believe In.
Just kidding. What if we try for a third George Washington term? I think he's the last one most of us agree got the job done right.
