No Beard?


No beard?

"I thought this was the line for Santa."

Or so Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy informed Vice President Dick Cheney, after standing in a long line to have his picture taken with the latter at his annual Christmas party.

Average Joe

In a strange political twist, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Joe Lieberman is touting an endorsement (of sorts) of his candidacy by President Bush.

"[C]onsider this recent report," writes Craig Smith, campaign director and senior adviser to Mr. Lieberman, forwarding an Australian news clipping in which Mr. Bush told Australian Prime Minister John Howard that Joe Lieberman is the opponent he fears most.

The daily newspaper Down Under reported that Mr. Bush told Mr. Howard that Mr. Lieberman would be his most "formidable opponent" in the 2004 presidential election, assuming "he won the primaries."

Meanwhile, Inside the Beltway yesterday reviewed 22 of the latest presidential polls conducted by major polling companies of registered voters who are either Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents. In virtually every nationwide survey, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is the front-runner. (The only time Mr. Dean doesn't lead is when Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is thrown into the equation, at which time she commands an overwhelming first-place standing.)

As for Mr. Lieberman, in all 22 polls, he finishes anywhere from a distant second to fourth place, depending on the company conducting the canvassing.
