178. It might take some whistleblower
or maybe several of them, then a respected journalist with tons of credibility to report it, and then maybe the networks would pick it up--but the evidence would have to be overwhelming. I think also, Bush's numbers would have to remain low all summer, or they still won't want to touch him. But as it's going now, he'll still be at least as shaky this summer as he is now. And the Repub Congress will be looking worse and worse.

But then, say the story is out: Republicans stole votes to get Bush elected. Then what? Bush can deny he was involved, and maybe he really wasn't--maybe they kept him in a state of plausible deniability. If I were Rove, that's what I'd do--but Cheney likely knows. Then Bush won't just say, oops, and leave. More likely he'll just stay in place as a very, very, very lame duck, the 2006 elections will swing Democratic, and hopefully, with electoral reform, a Dem president in 2008.
