THE RACE Mirror, mirror on the wall, whos most fit to lead us all? I am, said the candidate from Alabama. State your case. I have the most honest look. I can coo like a dove and swoop down like a hawk. Next, the candidate from Arizona. What do you say? Im the most ambitious. I deserve to lead. Then a cackle of voices: Im a known winner. Go with a winner. Im a media insider. I have big bucks. Ill bring back the old family values. I can bring in the angry cornballs. I know where the real bottom line is. Ill end bureaucracy. O fearful symmetry! Whos the meanest of them all? A nameless figure in the shadows hanging from an opinion poll.
