Good call, GOP!

The Republican National Committee has chosen New York City to host its 2004 Presidential Nominating Convention. One of Bush's greatest moments - perhaps the moment in which, in the eyes of many tearful, skeptical Americans, George W. Bush became president - took place on the Friday after 9/11, when Bush stood on the fender of a busted firetruck, arm around an old fireman, and shouted to the emotionally exhausted workers: "I hear you. The world hears you. And soon, the people who did this will hear from all of us." The reprise in 2004 will be a spotlight on "Bush the President" - something the Democrats, led by "New Yorkers" Bill and Hilary Clinton, gift-wrapped for GWB by taking the money and running to Boston.
