THE OSAMA BOUNCE 

So, any predictions for when Bush and Rove will decide that it's the right time to trot out bin Laden in handcuffs?

Best bets:

- Late July, around the Democrats' convention.

- Early September (maybe around the 11th), to give a boost to Bush after the Republican convention.

- Early to mid-October--the "October Surprise" we've heard plenty of speculation about.

My guess, though, is that they know those three times are too obvious, too transparent. They'll do it at some odd time--say, to drown out the hubbub around some unflattering report or revelation, perhaps to do with the Plame investigation.

This is all just idle speculation, of course....
