Dick Morris: Beware an October Surprise

Monday, 25 October 2004 12:00 AM

Dick’s newest book is out about Bill Clinton.

Morris is probably the most prominent American political consultant and is almost universally credited with piloting Bill Clinton to a stunning comeback re-election victory in 1996 after the president lost Congress to the Republicans two years before.

Called "the most influential private citizen in America" by Time Magazine, Morris helped steer Clinton to the center and away from the liberal policies he had pursued in his first two years in office.

In addition to Clinton, Morris has handled the winning campaigns for more than 30 senators and governors, including Republican Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott and former Governors Bill Weld of Massachusetts and Pete Wilson of California.

Morris has become a familiar figure as a commentator for the Fox News Channel.

After the third debate, he unleashed an attack on Kerry as too liberal, a view which was ratified by Kerry's promises in the debate.

As a result of that attack and Kerry's comments about Cheney's daughter, Bush began to open up a lead again.

At the start of last week (Oct 18-21) Kerry rebounded, but Bush appears to be bouncing back this past weekend (Oct 22-24).

The race is not so much close as it is volatile; too early to call (not necessarily too close, just too early).

Republicans say they want to stop fraud but what they really want to do is to depress voter turnout. There is no virtue here on either side.
