] When President Bush mentioned steroids in his State of
] the Union earlier this year, some people wondered why the
] president seemed interested in an unfolding criminal case
] involving a Bay Area drug lab and some of the country's
] best-known athletes.
] Now, J. Tony Serra, who's defending San Francisco Giants
] slugger Barry Bonds' personal trainer, says he's figured
] it out.
]Serra said the government is rushing to trial and wants to get ]convictions so Bush can use the case to help win re-election.
[ Interesting. Though, I wonder, am I underestimating how much people will care about this issue? Is Bush overestimating it, as I believe, if this is true? I don't see how this can be of much use. As we've seen, it's the economy and iraq that are driving this campaign, though I expect some social policy things, such as gay marriage and abortion policy will make some impact too. This one, i just don't see being a major blowup, but I'm wrong on things sometimes... -k]
