“Bush McCain”

“BUSH-McCAIN”….Elisabeth Bumiller presents us with a charming President’s Day story about both an actual president and a man who would be president:

Senator John McCain’s campaign advisers will ask the White House to deploy President Bush for major Republican fund-raising, but they do not want the president to appear too often at his side, top aides to Mr. McCain said Sunday.

….Democrats, meanwhile, have been using every opportunity to link Mr. McCain to Mr. Bush, even defining Mr. McCain’s candidacy as part of a “Bush-McCain” ticket that they say will essentially give the president another term.

Who will win this exciting battle? The answer, as always, depends on….our friends in the press! Stay tuned.
