if you're an angry voter now...

Angry voters statistically are more likely to vote, which may help the Democrats this fall. On the other hand, de facto President Bush appears ready to attack Iran sometime soon -- before November, according to counterterror expert Larry Johnson.

Will that help Bush, by reviving the "wartime president" bullshit that the Republicans used so skillfully in 2002 to defeat "soft on terror" Democrats like Senator Max Cleland? Or will it HURT them after a few thousand Americans are killed in terrorist reprisals and people realize again that half-cocked attacks in the Middle East aren't necessarily a wise policy?
