Well, the toesucker has weighed on on Bush's re-election vulnerability, specifically analyzing the likelihood of Hillary or Gore entering the race. Most interesting to me, however, is the reason Morris gives for Bush's falling poll numbers:

"Why is Bush falling so badly? The superficial reasons are the Iraq casualties, the failure to find WMDs and the continuing inability to round up Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. But the real reason is that terror is receding as an issue, largely due to Bush's success."

The price of victory? Ironic. The solution?

"The solution for Bush is to put terrorism back on the front burner by high profile and aggressive action against Iran and/or North Korea. It's not necessary to wag the dog, but Bush should wag his tongue and raise the profile of these two remaining threats to our security."
