POLITICS: MUST-READ Novak

A MUST-READ column from Bob Novak this morning (really, a must even if you're a Democrat) on the dilemma now facing President Bush in California: fish with Bill Simon, on the basis of a single poll showing he's competitive, or cut bait from his flailing campaign? Personally I don't think Gray Davis will run for president, and I don't think Bush will win California in 2004 unless he's winning in a landslide anyway, but the decision is still important - just making California competitive again will drain huge resources from the Democrats.

If I'm Simon, I'm going nothing but negative, and on Davis' record, the rest of the way. The only way Simon wins is to relentlessly ask the question, "Are we prepared to accept that we just can't do any better than Gray Davis?" It worked for George Pataki in 1994.
