With the independent cyncism of a pollster, John Zogby said in yesterday’s Palm Beach Post that for the second presidential election in a row, he is posing a Wizard of Oz question. It goes like this: If you have to vote between The Scarecrow, all heart and no brain, and The Tin Man, all brain and no heart, whom would you chose? By Zogby’s reckoning, it was a revealing referendum on George W. Bush (The Scarecrow) and Al Gore (The Tin Man). It also works for this election, he said.
“Who would have thought,” Zogby said, “that the Democrats would have found another Tin Man?”
