I think one can make a strong argument that we were at the low point of the admin (at least in the media, and in their own eyes--whole thing has been a low point) before Saddam. And at a clear milestone of the end of 3rd year. I left much off my first list, like the dead Afghan kids, China trade imbalance, jobs, reversal on steel, sneak Patriot 2, and, in general, the dem candidates dominating political news.

For sure it's not as simple as just wanting to distract from any one thing like Halliburton.

I agree maybe Saddam alive was not the plan. But don't think it would have been realistic to hold him for months, whomever had him, until we were deeper in the election cycle. No doubt they have other plans for a national distraction by then, such as Syria (sanctions started today).
