Here’s what I have to say about the talk of postponing the fall election. Not to be grim, but if there’s a terrorist attack between now and then, no matter how spectacular, those of us who survive vote on the scheduled date. What other scenario makes sense?

And one wonders how Bush can campaign on the idea that he’s made America safer when we’re talking about postponing the most important political event in America — nationwide elections — due to terrorism? There was no talk of this in 2002 before we removed the terrorist menace from Iraq, was there?
