Can Bush be beaten in 2004

In Four More Years? Pat Buchanan (challenger for Republican party nomination in 1992 against incumbent George Bush, Sr.) argues in September's The Atlantic that it might take a miracle.

"Can Bush be beaten? Assuredly—but absent celestial intervention, maybe not by any of the current crop of Democratic candidates. As Damon Runyon observed, the race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but that's the way to bet."

The possibility of an attack from the right, the same way that support for the Green Party lost the White House for the Democrats, seems an interesting idea and Buchanan exposes where Bush is weak on that front.

I've said for some time that the only way to beat Bush is from the Right. He is so weak on so many conservative issues.
