What does Saddam's capture mean politically?

December 15, 2003

Albany-- Political analysts are already debating how the capture of the America's Most Wanted Man will affect President's Bush re-election campaign.

It's good news for Mr. Bush and all Republicans. Darton College Professor Roger Marietta says the capture of Hussein will vindicate the war for many voters, but he says Democrats will benefit in the long run.

"Any foreign policy issue is an advantage to Republicans in general and to the President. So if Iraq is settled by the early to mid part of next year, the American people will be ready to move on to the next issue," said Marietta.

Marietta says if the economy continues to improve and troops start coming home, it will be almost impossible for a Democrat to beat President Bush.
