Look, I'm totally certain that the Schiavo case has nothing to do with positioning Jebbie for 2008 

but that does seem to have been the effect, hasn't it?

He has assumed a very high profile in this polarizing case just as Republicans are contemplating the void that will be left when President Bush begins his walk off the stage in two years or so. At a time when many of the most frequently mentioned possibilities to lead the party are moderates like John McCain and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the governor now certainly has a place, if he wants it, as a prime contender in what is shaping up as a fight to represent a conservative wing that has proved increasingly dominant.

"He has strongly identified himself with the Christian conservative movement," said Matthew Corrigan, a political science professor at the University of North Florida. "If the Republican Party is looking for someone with good ties with the Christian conservative movement, he is the one who is going to have them."

Of course, The Bush Power would never use the corpse of a brain-dead woman as a political football, not even to position themselves for 2008, any more than they would start a war to help them out in a mid-term election... Oh, wait...
