"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Friday, November 28, 2003


Remember yesterday, when I voiced suspicion that the prime motivation for Bush's surprise Baghdad trip was to show up Hillary Clinton, who was visiting Afghanistan and Iraq at the time? Crazy, huh?

Well, well, well, what do we have here?
She also acknowledged that the missile attack earlier this month on a German DHL cargo plane had almost caused the White House to scrap Bush's visit, which was planned for weeks starting in mid-October...

Rice also denied that the White House -- which is famed for its attention to political detail -- made the trip to bolster Bush's chances to win a second term in November 2004.

"This originated out of the president and the policy side," said Rice, who stopped short of saying that political adviser Karl Rove did not know about the trip.

Bush's visit overshadowed a similar one a day later by Senator Hillary Clinton. A source familiar with the planning of her visit said the administration was informed in late September that she would go.
