Another sign

Another sign the GOP is taking the Democratic "Dream Team" ticket seriously: President Bush is getting involved. He's started taking pot shots at Ron Kirk and Tony Sanchez, and is scheduled to speak in Houston during the Texas Democratic Convention, presumably to draw press coverage away from that event.

Not a word about the Lt. Governor race, though. Given that the real power in the state lies in this office, I find that a bit curious. Of course, Governor is the high-profile job, so from a PR viewpoint the GOP really doesn't want to lose that office, but in terms of day-to-day activity, Lite Gov is where it's at.
