Can President Bush Score during His Lame-Duck Years? ()
President Bush is facing some of his most difficult political days in the White House, confronted by tough audiences at home and abroad. In Europe for the G8 Summit, which starts tomorrow, the President already is facing criticism for his proposal on global warming. With new leaders in Europe, will Bush be able to form new political alliances? Can he count on traditional alliances?
