LANDING ON THE LINCOLN: One

LANDING ON THE LINCOLN: One point about President Bush’s landing on the USS Lincoln that I don’t think I’ve seen mentioned is how it ties in with Karl Rove’s strategy of keeping the president somewhat out of the public eye. Unlike Clinton and Gore, who seemingly never saw a photo-op they didn’t like, because Bush has had less media exposure, when he does a showy move such as landing on aircraft carrier–its impact is magnified that much.

The contrast between Clinton and Bush provides yet another lesson for future presidents.
