Rolling on a River

President Bush campaigned in Louisiana yesterday and the overnight tracking polls ticked up for Suzanne Terrell, the Republican challenger to incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D). My friends down there tell me that Terrell can now be considered a favorite to win the run-off election this Saturday, 8 December. If Terrell does indeed defeat Landrieu, Senator John Breaux's life in the minority party will be a whole lot more painful.
