  • Tom Raum, Abortion Bill May Trigger Election Fight, White House AP, November 6, 2003: "President Bush's signing of a ban on a certain type of abortion helps him shore up re-election support within his party's conservative core. It also appears to be triggering some unintended political consequences, from mobilizing abortion-rights activists, who consider it the first attack on the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, to setting up a divisive election-year battle over the court's next vacancy. ... Given the strong passions surrounding any abortion question, the president's signing of a bill Wednesday that outlaws what critics call partial-birth abortion could have political ramifications far beyond the medical and ethical issues at stake."
  • Jim Rutenberg, G.O.P. to Run an Ad for Bush on Terror Issue, New York Times, November 21, 2003: "After months of sustained attacks against President Bush in Democratic primary debates and commercials, the Republican Party is responding this week with its first advertisement of the presidential race, portraying Mr. Bush as fighting terrorism while his potential challengers try to undermine him with their sniping. ... The new commercial gives the first hint of the themes Mr. Bush's campaign is likely to press in its early days. It shows Mr. Bush, during the last State of the Union address, warning of continued threats to the nation: 'Our war against terror is a contest of will, in which perseverance is power,' he says after the screen flashes the words, 'Some are now attacking the president for attacking the terrorists.' ... By indirectly invoking the Sept. 11 attacks, the commercial plays to what White House officials have long contended is Mr. Bush's biggest political advantage: his initial handling of the aftermath of the attacks."

  • Joel Brinkley, Halliburton Likely to Be a Campaign Issue This Fall, New York Times, February 13, 2004: "As the accusations and investigations of the Halliburton Company's federal contracts in Iraq expand in size and number, Democrats say they will use the company's ties to the Bush administration as a campaign issue, and Halliburton is responding with television advertisements implying that it is being unfairly singled out."
