Only Four Ex-Presidents Left

Carter, Bush I, Clinton and Gore. Poppy's the only remaining Repug. Will he sacrifice himself for aWol's campaign? Reagan's death seems to have chased all of the scandals to the back pages or out of the papers entirely; Kerry is quieting his campaign for a week (will anyone notice?). But the Iraqi "government" will collapse, more soldiers will be killed, the investigation into the Plame leak will progress, Fahrenheit 9/11 and the 9/11 commission report will come out. Only another presidential funeral could possibly chase all that out of the news. Will Poppy make the ultimate sacrifice?

[Update, 10 PM--Sorry, I forgot about Gerald Ford, our first appointed pResident, rumored to still be alive. Then again, who hasn't forgotten Gerald Ford? Although I have less of an excuse than most, having driven by his presidential library about two hours ago.]
