Deep Trouble?

Andrew Sullivan thinks that Bush is in "deep trouble," though he quickly follows his assessment with a quote from Will Saleten indicating how rhetorically challenged Kerry is. Sullivan is likely projecting his own dissatisfaction with Bush's budget deficits and his stance on "gay marriage" onto the situation. The candidate whom the GOP should have feared most is Edwards, and, as Fred Barnes notes, it looks like he's done now. Bush isn't bulletproof, but the glib Edwards would have been a more difficult opponent than Kerry will be. To say that Bush is in "deep trouble" is an overstatement.

By the way, although it's a bit early for speculation like this, a Bush victory in 2004 means that Edwards may just give Hillary a run for her money in 2008.
