      But I have to admit that as I see the non-stop Benghazi coverage on  Fox News, I can't help but remember how many of us thought Abu Ghraib would be the end of the Bush presidency in 2004.

      I think the lesson that we learned -- and that Republicans probably haven't -- is that a single issue will rarely swing an election.  Especially if it is something that is happening outside the US.
