WaPo: Bush may seek third term

Any other President, any other administration, and this wouldn't bother me so much. Well, it probably wouldn't.

Check out the Washington Post's front-page preview on Bush's state of the union address tonight:

For years, President Bush and his advisers expressed frustration that the White House received little credit for the nation's strong economic performance because of public discontent about the Iraq war. Today, the president is getting little credit for improved security in Iraq, as the public increasingly focuses on a struggling U.S. economy.

That is the problem Bush faces as he prepares to deliver his seventh and probably final State of the Union address tonight.
"Probably final?" Probably?

I'm hoping Michael Abramowitz and his editors are either more careless, or a lot funnier, than I thought. The third alternative is too much to contemplate.
