    Do you think that being one of the chief aides of an incredibly unpopular (in MA) President will be utterly irrelevant in a campaign? Anyone he's running against, in either a primary or the general, would tie him to Bush with steel cables; it would be the obvious attack.

    And Bush is unpopular for lots of reasons. The main one may be the Iraq war, but take a look at his approval ratings for the economy or health care. Those are issues that a state governor needs to care about.

    You may be right that Bush won't be a drag on the overall GOP ticket in November (I disagree), but I think the case of one of his closest aides potentially running in one of the most anti-Bush states in the country would qualify as an exception to that rule.
