What struck me about Russertís interview was Bushís reaction to the question. He was stunned. Couldnít actually believe this man had the audacity to ask such a thing. For me, that was most telling and very, very honest. "Please elaborate on that a little bit" was a defensive posture move - trying to stall the inquiry long enough for the tape in his head to catch up - so he could deliver his well rehearsed come-back. Youíd have thought by the look on the poor manís face that Tim had just told him he had no pants on. Very telling.

And to answer your question, VetWife, no - not even close.
