THE OSAMA TAPE....OK, here's my opinion about the bin Laden tape: it's not going to affect the election one way or another. Given everything that's happened over the past three years, I don't think a new tape is really all that scary (so no rally-around-the-flag effect for the president), but I also think everyone is already well aware that Osama is still on the loose (so no Bush-blew-it-at-Tora-Bora effect for Kerry).

Net effect: pretty much zero.

As for who Osama prefers to see win the election, I doubt that he really cares. And I know for sure that I don't care. And neither should anyone else.
