So the man who didn't get elected President in 2004 manages to be in Pakistan for a crucial election, survives an emergency helicopter landing in Afghanistan while checking up on the very fragile central front in the war on al-Qaeda, and gets a meeting with the Turkish Prime Minister on the day that Turkey launches a full-scale ground invasion of northern Iraq. Senator John Kerry above, with his colleagues Joe Biden and Chuck Hagel. Not many George Bush fans there.
Meanwhile, George Bush, where is he? Sleeping off the jet lag after the flight from Liberia. The Swiftboaters must be so happy.
