Leaving Office

Recent revelations by Richard Clarke, the former anti-terrorism official, that the Administration was fixated on Iraq while not paying enough attention to terrorism and by Richard Foster, the former government actuary, that the Administration tried to keep estimates of the cost of the Republican changes to Medicare from Congress are adding to increased skepticism of President Bush's credibility. It's not possible to realistically predict what will happen in November, but the chances that Kerry could actually win seem to be on the upswing.
