Articles & Commentary
- Don Campbell, 'Maybe' now prevails in presidential surveys, USAToday, October 20, 2003: "George W. Bush was cruising toward a second term when a big story hit late last month: A Gallup Poll found that his job approval rating had dropped to 50%. What's more, it showed that some guy named Wesley Clark would defeat him in a head-to-head presidential battle. Suddenly, White House strategists and Republican Party operatives were admitting this could be another one-term Bush presidency."
- Michael Janofsky, Some Clues to '04, However Faint, Are Set to Emerge, New York Times, November 1, 2003: "With a presidential campaign well under way, leaders of both parties are searching for signs, any signs, of favorable trends for November 2004. For the next two weeks, the best place to look is the South, where three states (Kentucky, Mississippi, and Louisiana) will hold elections for governor."

- The Iowa Surprise, New York Times Op-Ed, January 20, 2004: "... high up on the list of bad guessers were all the political theorists who believed that the Democrats who are angry at George Bush wanted the presidential candidate who best channeled their outrage. Yesterday, at least, being angry at Mr. Bush meant wanting to find a candidate who could beat him."

- Tom Raum, Abortion Bill May Trigger Election Fight, White House AP, November 6, 2003: "President Bush's signing of a ban on a certain type of abortion helps him shore up re-election support within his party's conservative core. It also appears to be triggering some unintended political consequences, from mobilizing abortion-rights activists, who consider it the first attack on the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, to setting up a divisive election-year battle over the court's next vacancy. ... Given the strong passions surrounding any abortion question, the president's signing of a bill Wednesday that outlaws what critics call partial-birth abortion could have political ramifications far beyond the medical and ethical issues at stake."
- Jim Rutenberg, G.O.P. to Run an Ad for Bush on Terror Issue, New York Times, November 21, 2003: "After months of sustained attacks against President Bush in Democratic primary debates and commercials, the Republican Party is responding this week with its first advertisement of the presidential race, portraying Mr. Bush as fighting terrorism while his potential challengers try to undermine him with their sniping. ... The new commercial gives the first hint of the themes Mr. Bush's campaign is likely to press in its early days. It shows Mr. Bush, during the last State of the Union address, warning of continued threats to the nation: 'Our war against terror is a contest of will, in which perseverance is power,' he says after the screen flashes the words, 'Some are now attacking the president for attacking the terrorists.' ... By indirectly invoking the Sept. 11 attacks, the commercial plays to what White House officials have long contended is Mr. Bush's biggest political advantage: his initial handling of the aftermath of the attacks."
