26. No he won't
Bush's appearances are all planned in advance to weed out dissenters. They put local operatives on the ground who know the territory and can spot any potentially "troublesome" individuals.

Case in point. Several months ago in Michigan there was a Bush rally at a college stadium. The tickets were free and openly available, so seven college Democrats decided to get some and go to the rally.

They made it through the turnstile and several layers of security. But, when they got to the last checkpoint, a couple of the college's Republicans recognized them, ran over and talked to a security guard, and they were escorted away without being given any reason.

Bush is the greatest coward who ever held our country's highest office. It is shameful.
