It seems someone else is making the sort of comparison I’ve been thinking of for a few weeks now. Consider the scenario: you have an incumbent President whom the opposition viscerally hates, and against him you’re running an uninspired (and uninspiring) old man who can charitably be described as “creepy”.

Now, am I talking about 2004 or 1996?

[Note: Yes, I thought Bob was creepy even before he did Viagra ads and was staring down the front of Britney Spears’ dress for Pepsi].
