Polls are showing Kerry ahead. Assuming Kerry puts Bush away in the coming debates, what can Team Arbusto do to avoid elimination? I'm thinking they're holding the bin Laden card, and will announce his "death" just before election day. It will be presumed, of course, after a bombing attack. "Officials still need to verify DNA samples, but the body matches the profile" will be the clause. Then, even if we haven't killed him, it will take a week or more for bin Laden to rush a new videotape onto the scene, by which time Bush will have (if the ploy works) won the election. Call me crazy, but I'll bet they've got this one in the playbook.
