Kerry and Clarke, again

Saturday I was wondering whether Clarke was really helping Kerry. I realize it is still far too early to put much stock in polls, and it is difficult to draw conclusions about causation, but a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll out today suggests that Bush is gaining on Kerry, especially when voters are asked about national security.

Captain Ed commented on this poll this morning:

Instead of being wounded by the debate over the past week, Bush has been lifted as the electorate has been reminded that a war is still on -- and the Democrats have no strategy to fight it. They change positions to match the prevailing wind, and in that strategy John Kerry is the perfect standardbearer for the party.

Captain Ed has another post about Clarke this morning worth a read, titled "Did Clarke's Team Keep the FBI In The Dark?".
