I was always told that "almost" didn't really count. The Bushies "almost" caught Zarqawi in Iraq. Didn't they "almost" capture Bin Laden at one point? Bin Laden is still out there recruiting. Zarqawi is still inciting violence, murders and kidnappings in Iraq. Perhaps, the government should try a little harder and save the "almost"s for 2008 when they will have had "almost" won the presidential election (if there's any justice).
