You have to admit that the debate in Democratic circles, over whether to try to run against George W. Bush one last time, is at least a legitimate debate. Whether you come down on the side of it being a no brainer or consider it a tacit admission of failure (or, as I do, think of it as just another arrow in the quiver in an election year where Dems better shoot all the arrows they can muster), you can make a reasoned argument either way.
But Republicans wanting to make 2010 a referendum on Bush
? Are you kidding me?
