The Tangled Webs We Weave

The Washington Post reports today that White House strategists are viewing the upcoming midterm elections as the only possible salvation for the president's plummeting poll numbers.

According to the article: "If Republicans retain Congress in November, Bush advisers note, he could assert that for the third straight election, the party defied historical patterns and popular predictions. Bush, they said, could advance a fresh agenda in early 2007."

So the Bush strategists think their best shot at success is by not losing control of Congress.

Ironically, though, the best shot Republicans have against losing control of Congress is by distancing themselves from Bush.

Side-Note: How bad do things need to be for the best hope to become not blowing a 30 seat advantage in the House and a 10 seat advantage in the Senate?
