The Bush era is over: a growing bipartisan belief

There's a creeping belief even among Republicans that the Bush era is over.

Writes John Farmer in the Star Tribune.

If true, it has serious implications for a host of things -- George W.'s domestic agenda, the war in Iraq, next year's Senate and House elections and the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. It also would mean, ironically, that the Bush era, which began with his timely response to the Sept. 11 tragedy, died with his tardy reaction to the devastation in New Orleans.

The pessimism about Bush could be premature; political popularity is a volatile commodity, subject to quick and unexpected change. But the signs are ominous.
