8. He still had awful approval ratings...even before the economic collapse.

For Bush to win a third term, you'd have to go back and fix Iraq in 2005. That's really what killed his approval ratings, since Iraq turned into a gigantic clusterfuck shortly after he started his second term. It's a big reason the Dems took control of the House & Senate in the numbers they did in 2006 ... so, I don't think there is any possibility of Bush winning a third term.

IMO, I think Bush would've opted to not run again. Kind of like LBJ in '68.
