State of the Horse

I was joking with Amy about this the other day, but then GWB actually said it tonight, so I thought I'd point it out:
GWB: "We have not come all this way -- through tragedy, and trial, and war -- only to falter and leave our work unfinished."

Campaign ad from Wag the Dog:

We see two business people on the plane: a man and a woman.

Businessman: Well, all I know, you don't change horses in the middle of the stream.

Businesswoman:"Don't change horses," well, there's a lot of truth in that.

The image shifts to a President, doing presidential things.

Voice-Over: For peace, prosperity, for all of us: Don't change horses in...

I love the idea of running on the platform that your work isn't done yet. Doesn't matter what that work is, just as long as you can convince people they should let you finish it.

Which trial does he mean, by the way? I guess not the trial of Osama bin Laden. Or the trial of Dick Cheney in France, for that matter.

Anyway, here's the full text of the speech.
