Salon has a piece today arguing that Democrats can only win if they can convince people that Bush is a phony. I’m not entirely sure Bush is a phony, though, so that may be a tough task. I think Bush really is very decisive and really does have a strong set of convictions. My problem with him is that I don’t agree with his convictions or his decisions. If most Americans do, then Democrats are going to have a tough row to hoe. I don’t think that nuance is selling very well right now, which is not unusual but is unfortunate.
