The New York Times headline echoes that sentiment: "Bush Trumpets Verdict in Iraq As Some Polls Lift G.O.P. Spirits." But the USA Today apparently didn't get the memo, where the front-page story leads with this: "Democrats, poised to score gains in the U.S. Senate, are struggling to pull ahead in the final seat they need to win control." Not a whole lot has actually changed since last week, when most of the headlines and stories centered around Dem prospects for big wins. Of course, in dealing with unknowable events like elections, it's never a bad idea to get all the bases covered.
