A NICE BUMP, BUT...:

Bhutto death makes McCain man of the moment (Roger Simon, Dec 28, 2007, Politico)

John McCain, older than dirt and with more scars than Frankenstein as he likes to say, suddenly wasn’t looking so bad.

Benazir Bhutto had been assassinated in Pakistan and the political conversation in America had changed.

Which means at least for a little while Republicans here were not thinking about which presidential candidate was tougher on immigration or which had the best Christian conservative credentials.


...it's a story that will be forgetten by 2008. From the voters' perspective, the takeaway from the Bhutto assassination is that they're killing each other now instead of us.
