Stealing the thunder

[source, source]

Reuters reports that Bush called Kerry to congratulate him for clinching the Democratic nomination, and said he was looking forward to a “spirited” race.

I have heard or read about this call, usually presented with affectionate bemusement, on NPR and Imus, many weblogs and in newspaper stories from all the major outlets, inserted into almost every story about Senator Kerry’s great victory on Super Tuesday. On Senator Kerry’s big day, I keep hearing about the President acting like a decent human being. Political commentators are constantly mentioning the President and his five minute phone call when reporting on Senator Kerry securing the Democratic nomination.

And they’re all wondering why he did it?

If the liberals had any contact with reality, they’d be dangerous.
