Reagan's health deteriorating

Story on CNN

Is it too cynical to think that the Republicans are thinking about what would be the best timing for Reagan's death to provide the best boost for the election? Of course, since Nancy and W disagree on stem-cell research (and let's give credit to Nancy for seeing beyond supersition and realizing something could help millions of people, even though it's too late for her husband) it may not be a big deal, but I expect Reagan's passing to open up a groundswell of feel-good conservative sentiment, which Bush will surely try and associate himself with.

I'm glad that people are largely leaving Reagan alone, and I hope his last days are spent with his family and they get closure. After that, I hope the media circus isn't too crazy.
