11. A pro-war candidate would be seen as agreeing with Bush on the war...
and would, more or less, negate that as an issue for Democrats. But it would strengthen Bush's claim as a wartime leader. So, in my opinion, an anti-war candidate would be a better candidate simply for that reason. Of course, it would not matter if the war were not politicized, but Bush and Rove planned on using the war as an issue months ago...Either you are with them or you are against them..they made it perfectly clear.
