We got him!:
No, not Saddam
. ... Rather, Keith Foulke

-- Saddam's capture is obviously big news. My quickie observation is that, for George Bush, this is not unlike Sherman's timely capture of Atlanta before Lincoln's re-election. Not that I'm comparing the War on Terrorism to the Civil War. Nor am I suggesting Saddam's (or Atlanta's) capture was an act of staged political cynicism. But good battlefield news is good political news. And George Bush -- and the nation -- needed some good battlefield news. ... Next up is indeed Osama. If he's not captured or killed soon, there probably will be ugly political accusations of a coming 'October surprise' next year, blah, blah, blah. Personally, I don't believe this administration thinks that way. I have a gut feeling -- just a gut feeling -- we're closing in on Osama, assuming he's still alive, and that yesterday's dramatic events give the hunt for him more momentum.
