Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. One would hope that any talk of using this tragedy
for political gain (by proposing invading Iran or so on), would bring some serious talk of politicizing murder from the Democrats. But of course, there's a good chance the Democrats would be cowed.

2. They'll use it as means to curtail more freedom. And his idiot followers
will swallow it up, not realizing that the US has had no terror attack since 9/11 and, worse, not even fathom how * has made the terrorism situation WORSE since his invasion of Iraq... they will think he's the greatest and will back any lunatic or fascist idea he'll throw out.

They don't read all the news articles and can't even put 1 and 1 together to make 2.

3. It will certainly be
interesting to see if this gets politicized or used to support some nefarious new agenda (which might conceivably be Iran-related). You know they are looking for a pretext.

4. I voted a combination of the above...
I think they'll try to use it both as a distraction from the DSM/Rove/Impeachment goings-on, as well as a reason to attack Iraq.

But, I could be wrong... there's always a first time. ;-)

5. An Answer from Fox News:

...And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.

VARNEY: It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting.

It takes global warming off the front burner.

It takes African aid off the front burner.

It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again.

Does anything else need to be said? People die, right rejoices.
