CLOUT

This weekend's headlines were all about G.W.'s clout, and how he's going to spend it. I'm sorry, but a 3% margin of victory does not spell clout to me. He won, yes, but it was a close race. Nearly half of the country clearly is not behind him or his agenda. If G.W. feels that he has earned some sort of political dividend, it's simply because this time there's less dispute about the outcome, which is tantamount to saying that last time he did steal the Presidency, i.e. he feels legit for the first time, and now he's really gonna make us pay.
