I realize much of what Drudge conveys as news is often misleading, however I hope this time he's right when he posts:

Bill Clinton spoke with John Kerry from his hospital bed on Saturday night in a 90-minute conversation in which he offered Kerry detailed advice on how to reinvigorate his candidacy... Clinton told Kerry that he should move away from talking about Vietnam... Clinton aides who are expected to play an increasingly prominent role in Kerry campaign are James Carville, Paul Begala and Stanley Greenberg... Developing...

Drudge also links a story informing us the "October Surprise" is right on schedule:

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - The United States and its allies have moved closer to capturing Osama bin Laden in the last two months, a top U.S. counterterrorism official said in a television interview broadcast Saturday.

"If he has a watch, he should be looking at it because the clock is ticking. He will be caught," Joseph Cofer Black, the U.S. State Department coordinator for counterterrorism, told private Geo television network.

Make no mistake, Bush/Cheney/Rove have been putting on the blistering heat to get Osama caught. They'll probably want it to happen sometime in the next few weeks. My fear is given how the public will naively suck up this news, I don't know how Kerry counter-attacks it effectively. In raw fashion, it offers up one of the truest advantages held by the incumbent -- mainly because he is the commander in chief.
